Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta
This Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta was inspired by a favorite New Orleans dish. The creamy sauce with the slightly spicy, buttery shrimp is to die for!
Servings 4 servings
Stir together and coat the shrimp in cajun seasoning.
In a large fry pan over medium heat, melt the butter and add the seasoned shrimp and sauté until shrimp begins to turn pink.
Add the red pepper and minced garlic and sauté another minute or two.
Reduce heat to medium-low and add the cream, parmesan cheese, basil, and pepper and simmer for about 10 minutes (I like to cook the pasta while this is simmering).
Toss in the cooked pasta and stir to coat.
