Over the years we've had a lot of people tell us the perfect pasta sauce is something you can only find at gourmet restaurants or in their Grandma's kitchen. While we're not here to dispute these claims we think that making a creamy and mouthwatering pasta sauce from scratch is not rocket science - and to prove our point we created our simple, yet deliciously flavorful Spicy Shrimp Alfredo dish using our Ragin' Cajun and salt free Garlic n Herbs spice blends. This recipe is a great alternative to pre packaged Alfredo sauces and for those who don't like it as spicy just subsitutue the Garlic n Herbs for our Cajun spice.
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Ingredients for Cajun Shrimp Alfredo:
- 1/4 cup butter.
- 4 ounce cream cheese.
- 1 cup milk.
- 5 ounces grated Parmesan cheese.
- 3 shrimp.
- 2 tablespoons olive oil.
- 1/2 lb pasta ( we like Farfalle for this recipe).
Directions for Cajun Shrimp Alfredo:
1.) Coat peeled uncooked shrimp with KBS Ragin' Cajun spice blend and add to sauté pan with olive oil. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp is cooked. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to box instructions.
2.) For Alfredo sauce melt butter in a non stick saucepan and set top medium heat. Add cream cheese and season to taste with KBS Garlic N Herbs ( there's no salt in our Garlic blend so just use more for s stronger garlic flavor). Add milk a little at time while gradually whisking. Once all the lumps are smooth add Parmesan and some Ragin' Cajun spice if you like it a little hotter. Add to pasta when sauce is at a good consistency. Note: If you cooked to quickly and sauce thickens just add a little more milk.
3.) Toss sauce with pasta and top with spicy shrimp.
