Light(Er) Cajun Chicken Alfredo

This is my trimmed and more diet friendly version of Cajun Chicken Alfredo. A few simple substitutions make a creamy favorite something for the one on the diet to enjoy as much as the one who just wants flavorful creamy spicy pasta. I adapted this recipe from one by Guy Fieri. Now this would still be a bit of a treat but it is about 400 calories lighter per serving than it's full fat relative.
