Cajun Shrimp Pasta
This 30-minute recipe will add a new dimension to your weekly menu Cajun Shrimp Pasta! With whole wheat noodles, juicy shrimp, and colorful veggies tossed in a lightly spicy cream sauce, this recipe is a homemade version of everyone’s favorite restaurant-style recipe.
This lighter Cajun shrimp pasta recipe is inspired by a well-loved restaurant of my childhood: Chili’s.
Their Cajun shrimp pasta was always one of my go-to orders (when I wasn’t down the street enjoying Applebee’s Oriental Chicken Salad).
Spicy blackened shrimp cooked in a thick Alfredo sauce, it was indulgent, heavy on the penne pasta, light on the veggies, and exactly that sort of thing that high school Erin craved (I wasn’t cued into lighter takes like Garlic Shrimp Pasta yet).
Even though I still enjoy a creamy, rich pasta dish every now and again, there are a few ways to make it healthier and more satisfying.
