eeeeeeew weeeee dis be some good pasta! I made this tonight listening to Zydeco music, hence the name. It has a nice little kick from the creole seasoning that makes you want to get up and shake your tail feather. I hope you enjoy this as much as my family and I did.

* Feel free to mix in other veggies too, like mushrooms, broccoli, etc! Or you can even throw in some shrimp instead of using the chicken!
