Flavorful, spicy and so much fun! Chicken, onions, celery and green bell peppers heavily seasoned with a delicious cajun spice blend, deglazed with a little white wine then tossed with pasta and cheese. So freaking good. You’re going to love it.

1/2-16oz pkg pasta (your fav shape)
2t garlic powder
1 1/2t onion powder
1/2t black pepper

Turn off the heat then pour in the pasta water, pasta and cream cheese then sprinkle the parm on top. Stir until everything is combined. Top with a little extra parm and parsley then serve.
