Cajun Chicken Pasta

1 lb Linguini noodles, cooked
1 lb boneless, skinless chicken, cubed
2 T olive oil
4 tsp. Cajun seasoning
2 green onions, sliced
1 can black olives, sliced
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 red pepper, diced
2 cups half and half (I've used fat free and low fat, both are okay)
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl. Toss. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute' chicken in oil until almost tender (5-7 min.) Add peppers, mushrooms, black olives and onions. Cook and stir for 2-3 min. Reduce heat. Mix half and half, seasonings and Parmesan cheese together and add to skillet. Heat through. Add noodles and toss.

**This is one of my favorite recipes; it's always turned out great!
