"This savory and spicy dish was created to tantalize my then boyfriend's (now hubby's) taste buds one Valentine's day many years ago."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was tasty, but I wouldn't make the shrimp and the sausage sepereate dishes. Don't get me wrong this was good, but I thought it would wow me more than it did. I would make again just mix the shrimp in to the sausage mixture at the end. There is a LOT more shrimp to sausage ratio if you only use a half lb of frozen shrimp.
Just don't tell the kids they are eating sexy shrimp. May give them ideas about the power of food.
The recipe was edited by Allrecipes for clarity. We prepare the shrimp and sausage mixtures separately to build the flavor profiles, but because there is very little red sauce (it reduces considerably) The shrimp and sausages are served together over the pasta. A nice compromise for carnivores, pescatarians or epicurians.
My husband and I thought the recipes were very good, but it should DEFINITELY be two separate dishes. The sausage/pepper dish served over pasta or the shrimp with butter served over pasta. Felt like we made two completely different recipes and didn't get how they went together. I would add oregano to the pepper/sausage dish too.
I essentially combined the two separate components (actually two different preparations or dishes altogether) into one dish. In so doing, I swapped out a couple of ingredients for those I thought better suited - fresh tomatoes for the "pasta sauce" and white wine rather than red; both lighter alternatives. Given that I used the Creole seasoning, I omitted the crushed red pepper flakes. I used no butter, just olive oil; only enough to saute everything. I served this over Shirataki (read fake) angel hair pasta - a substitute that fools no one but makes you feel better about what you ate! This is a nice, humble dish, satisfying yet still light and fresh.
Very tasty meal. Even though you seem to be making two seperate toppings, which you may be able to use as two individual recipes; the combination of the two side by side makes for a delicous combination of flavors. Thanks.
Best dish we have ever! Great recipie!
I'm not rating the recipe because I haven't tried it and probably won't because of the sausage. I'll add here that I had to rate it because I couldn't comment without a rating so I gave it a 4 which seems to be what most people gave it. However, I just wanted to say that I don't think food should be referred to as "sexy". I wish people would get over thinking if you call something sexy, others will like it more. This looks like a decent recipe without having to do that.
