- oil - cajun seasoning - salt - shrimp - green pepper - fettuccineINGREDIENTS:
Heat oil over medium heat in a large sauté pan. Add green pepper, onion, celery, and garlic. Cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they begin to soften.1
Add broth to deglaze the pan, loosening any browned bits. Then add pasta, undrained tomatoes, milk, Cajun seasoning, bay leaves, thyme, and salt.2
Once it comes up to a boil, reduce the heat to about medium or medium-low, to maintain a lively simmer.3
Stir in shrimp and continue cooking, covered, until the shrimp are done. Do not overcook.4
Add parmesan cheese and cream cheese, stirring to melt the cream cheese and distribute the cheeses evenly.5
You can use larger or smaller shrimp in this recipe, but you'll need to adjust their cooking time slightly, so they still end up perfectly cooked.TIP
