This Creamy Cajun shrimp pasta is really worth making.  It is a great pasta meal with the added bonus of delicious shrimp.  My family really liked it. Are you looking for a simple dessert? Try these chocolate crunch brownies I shared recently.
Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta

Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta

1 pound raw shrimp, peeled and deveined

8 ounces linguine, cooked

2 Tablespoons butter

2 green onions thinly sliced, (white and greens)

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese for garnish

Pat shrimp on paper towel to remove extra moisture, to help Cajun seasoning stick to the shrimp.  Place shrimp and Cajun seasoning in a bowl and toss to coat.

In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté shrimp and onions in butter until shrimp just turns pink. Reduce  heat. Add in heavy cream, sun dried tomatoes, basil, salt and garlic powder. Toss in cooked linguine and allow sauce to coat. Top with Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Enjoy!
