Chicken and Leek Pasta

This is a meal my wonderful boyfriend created. He is rather good in the kitchen and can kind of put things together knowing it will taste nice, a quality I would rather like to have! This meal is extremely easy to eat and comes in at under 500 calories making it light, easy and yummy!
