Creamy Cajun Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
I made this recipe once. I went ahead and made my own Cajun seasoning as well. I used 1tsp of red pepper in the place of cayenne. 1tsp of garlic powder, 1tsp of onion salt, 1tsp of lemon pepper, 1tsp of paprika and a half tsp of old bay lemon and herb seasoning. I also sautéed 2 cloves of garlic and green onion in the butter. The butter stays and doesn't evaporate. Don't use anything else than pure butter. Salted. I then added my shrimp and sautéed 1 minute and then removed all of it. Added my spices along with my flour and milk made it to my desired thickness. Once I felt the flour was devolved I put the shrimp and garlic along with the green onion and cooked it a bit more to allow the sauce to catch the flavor of the shrimp. I served this over linguini. Angel hair breaks apart too easily. But linguini is just the right amount of thickness. This recipe does need green onions to give it that extra flavor. I also added Parm to my sauce and let it cook . I will never buy pasta sauce again. Great recipe!!
