Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta

This was pretty good. It is VERY filling, so a little goes a long way. This isn't a meal I would make often but it's a nice alternative to regular pasta.

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1 box whole wheat pasta
2 teaspoons cajun seasoning
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk (I used 1%)
1 TBSP corn starch (whisked into milk)
2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

 Place chicken and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat. In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté chicken in EVOO until chicken is tender, about 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce heat add heavy cream, milk, tomatoes, basil, salt, garlic powder, black pepper and heat through. Pour over hot linguine and toss with Parmesan cheese.
