The Cajun spices in the pasta salad pep up your plate in this dish.  We’ve included ready-made Cajun seasoning, but if you want to make your own there’s details at the foot of the page.  Use gluten-free pasta if needed, and if you want a lower glycaemic index with your carbs, use wholemeal rather than ‘white’ pasta.
