Cajun Seafood Pasta

2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream

1 tbsp Chopped Basil

1 cup Chopped Italian Parsley

2 tsp Salt

3 tsp Ground Black Pepper

1 ½ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

1 cup Chopped Green Onions

12 Large Cooked Shrimp, thawed and cut in half (cut tails off as well)

½ lb Baby Scallops

8oz Package Imitation Crab Meat

½ cup Shredded Swiss Cheese

½ cup Grated Parmesan Cheese

16oz Fettuccine Pasta

Directions:

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta until tender.
2. While pasta is cooking, pour cream into a large skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it barely starts boiling. Reduce heat to low and add herbs, salt, peppers, and onions. Simmer 7-8 minutes, or until sauce is thickened.
3. Stir in seafood and cook on low for another 5-7 minutes. Stir in cheeses until well blended.
4. Drain pasta. If your pasta gets done before the sauce, simply drain, pour in a large bowl, add a little olive oil, and stir together to prevent pasta from sticking together.
5. Serve sauce over noodles and a side of bread and/or a small salad.

Serves 4-6

This pasta dish is so good, you’ll be scheduling it into your next week’s meal plan after you’ve taken that first bite. I particularly enjoy this meal the night before a long run. It fuels my body just right and tastes so good. Enjoy!
