Spicy Chicken Spaghetti

“I keep on the lookout for recipes that serve two,” explains LaDonna Reed. “We’re also watching our fat grams, so this main course was a great find. Adjust the spice level by decreasing the Cajun seasoning,” she writes from Ponca City, Oklahoma.

    This was wonderful! I doubled it for our family and used angel hair pasta and more green onions and mushrooms. It's a keeper and going on my "short list" of recipe's!
