Weight Watchers Spicy Chicken Pasta Recipe

Pasta! I love pasta! I love pasta!

I’m always trying to come up with more ways to make chicken.

I like chicken, but it can get boring if you don’t get creative.

This one has a little heat!

Onion, garlic, cumin, jalapeno pepper, cayenne pepper. See, spicy!

And cheesy, did I mention cheesy? Part-skim Mozzarella cheese, Low-fat Cheddar Cheese, Low-fat Swiss Cheese, and Parmesan Cheese.

The points are really high on the MyWW Green Plan, but not bad on the Blue Plan which is more pasta friendly.

So, sorry Green Plan people. This one could maybe be for a cheat day for you.
