Creamy Cajun Chicken Spaghetti

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Rachel Potachel

This is a (slightly) healthier version of one of my favorite comfort foods, which I adapted from my sister-in-law. You can always add more veggies to make this dish healthier...They'll be smothered with cheese so you won't even notice they're there, which is great for the kids! I recommend saving unused vegetable parts for a homemade stock. And, for easy clean up, use a plastic Crockpot liner.

This turned out really well, and it was easy. I used already cooked chicken, and just mixed all together and baked in oven until bubbly. Made for PAC 2011.
