    This turned out so good! Incredibly easy to make, and is very flavorful and filling. I added some sautéed onions and garlic to the sauce, along with a little bit of cayenne pepper, because we like things on the spicier side. My boyfriend, who normally isn’t a big fan of pasta dinners, had two servings and ate the rest for lunch the next day. Saving this one for future use!

    really need to cut down the Cajun seasoning... if you’re planning on used Old Bay Cajun seasoning, cut it in half. Super overwhelming taste.

    Definitely used too much Cajun seasoning. Or maybe I didn’t have enough shrimp. Either way this recipe was easy and delicious and I have my notes for next time!

    Boyfriend loved this! Only thing I changed was I added Crab Boil to the shrimp for the more “Cajun/crawfish” like flavor, added cream cheese to the sauce and green onion on top. Gonna be a monthly meal for us!
