I was on the hunt for something new to eat for dinner and after searching the Skinny Taste website I decided to try the Cajun Chicken Pasta because I was in the mood for chicken and since I hadn’t had pasta in a long while it sounded perfect.I went to the market and picked up the few essentials I’d need to make the meal and back home I went to cook up a fabulous meal. And I can say this is ABSOLUTELY fabulous!I did make a double batch of the recipe (which was a mistake because my boyfriend wouldn’t eat any because it was a “white sauce”) so I ended up giving some away and eating it for lunch and dinner for days on end.
I followed the recipe but ended up adding extra Cajun seasoning and a little black pepper, but other than that the recipe was word-for-word. The one thing I will say is I let my pasta sit in the pan I combined it all in for about 30 minutes and the sauce (at first it was swimming in liquid) soaked up into the dish. This is a recipe I highly recommend … it taste as though it would be HIGHLY unhealthy for you, but it really was anything but.
This is one of the desserts I made for Thanksgiving this year. I love pumpkin pie, but pumpkin pie is bogged down with a lot of unnecessary sugars. So to have something pumpkin and to not have to deal with the points (Weight Watchers) I decided to make something that was light and a dip rather than a pie that could turn into a trigger food.
I found this recipe on Skinnytaste.com and thought it sounded so good. I had all the ingredients in my cabinet, except I did not have the fat free Greek yogurt so I picked that up on my trip to the store and off and running I went.
I will say I would serve this with graham cracker squares or cinnamon squares. I know apples is a healthy way but the sweetness of the apple makes the dip almost ungodly sweet. You are putting brown sugar in the dip so it increases the sweetness in it anyway – but the apple slices, in my opinion, put it over the top. Perhaps if you do want apples I would suggest something tart, like a Granny Smith. Nonetheless it was a pretty yummy dip.
