Cajun Shrimp Pasta
- Bell Peppers – Sliced

- Mushrooms – Sliced
- Cajun Seasoning (click link for a recipe to make it with spices in your cabinet!)
- 1 tablespoon of melted butter
- 1 cup of milk
- Olive Oil
Recipes where you just kind of throw it all together are totally my kind of recipes. Start out by boiling the water to cook your pasta. While the water is heating, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet. When the oil is hot, pour in the veggies and shrimp and sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Stir occasionally. Once the water is boiling, cook the pasta of your choice for the time recommended on the package (aim for a fairly firm al dente because it will cook a bit more when you mix it all together and you don’t want mushy noodles). Mix your melted butter and milk in a measuring cup. Sprinkle in a little cajun seasoning. Once the vegetables are soft and the shrimp has turned pink, pour the milk and melted butter concoction in. Stir. Drain your cooked pasta and combine with veggies. Stir. Allow to thicken a bit. Serve and enjoy!
This definitely has a kick – lighten up on the cayenne and red-crushed pepper if you don’t like it too spicy!
