There’s a terribly scary movie on right now and I’m not sure how I feel about it.
I’ve been on the fence about scary movies since I was old enough to be allowed to watch one. I hate the suspense, but I love it at the same time. I know someone out there knows what I mean. To be honest, the best part of watching a scary movie is listening to Ryan scream and watch him literally jump and cringe when a scary part comes on.
Ask my roommates! - it’s seriously entertaining.
Something that isn’t scary? Cajun Shrimp & Sausage Pasta.
This is the epitome of comfort food.
Nothing is more satisfying to me than a bowl full of creamy noodles loaded with tons of goodies. Not to mention it’s seasoned generously with Cajun Seasoning, and quite comforting when every light in the house is off and I am writing by candlelight – just to add to the scary movie suspense.
Something else thats scary – I think I may have a serious weakness for all things pasta….and cereal. I had that for dinner the other night. Not my greatest dinner creation, but so it goes! This though, was quite extraordinary. If I do say so myself, you need to try this.
Go ahead and sautee those veggies to perfectly cooked yet crisp perfection.
And it will all come together in magical, creamy, Cajun perfection.
- 4 sausage links, sliced
- 1 C (about 14) uncooked, peeled deveined shrimp
- 1 med red pepper, sliced thin
- 1 C mushrooms, sliced
- 1 big handful matchstick carrots
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- cajun seasoning
- Light Cream
- olive oil
- Pasta (I used Dreamfields today for it’s low carb benefits)
- Prepare pasta according to directions.
- In a large pan, heat olive oil and sautee shallots, carrots, red pepper and mushrooms for 5 minutes. Throw in the garlic and continue cooking another 2 minutes. Set aside.
- Cook sausage for 8 minutes or until browned on both sides, then add shrimp and continue sauteeing until shrimp is done.
- Return veggies to the pan and start with 1 TBS of cajun/creole seasoning and about ¼ C of light cream. I used a bit more of each but thats my taste. Season with ground black pepper, then add in pasta and mix to combine.
- Serve immediately with some cajun/creole seasoning sprinkled over the top
