Cajun Chicken & Pasta Alfredo

Okay, this is my absolute favorite meal lately! I created it when I was craving a similar dish at a big, expensive chain restaurant and we were tight for cash. Now I can eat it at home whenever I want! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. It's a great dinner for those of you on low carb diets, too! Just make the chicken and pour the alfredo sauce all over your chicken and your favorite vegetable like steamed broccoli or peas. (By the way, I am not posting any more menus till someone comments on the one already here. Too much work if no one really cares, know what I mean? If you want more menus, please request it. Thanks!)
2 chicken breasts, diced
1 Tbsp olive oil
Cajun seasoning
green onions, diced
2 cups cooked pasta (we like bowtie)
1/2 tsp minced garlic
3/4 c butter
3/4 c grated parmesan
1 1/2 c cream
Saute the chicken and half the green onion in a pan with olive oil and sprinkle the Cajun seasoning generously over all. Remove chicken to another dish. Cover to keep warm. Melt butter in your pan. Add garlic and remaining green onion, saute. When onions turn soft, add cream and parmesan. Cook on medium heat, stirring until cheese is melted and all ingredients are well blended. Add a sprinkle or two of Cajun seasoning if desired. Pour over chicken and cooked pasta. (Caution: If your pan is too hot when you add the cream and cheese, you could end up with the ingredients separating into a gloppy mess. Do not boil!)
