Blackened Shrimp Pasta

Do you need a dinner that you can make in 20 minutes? I do. I got this Blackened Shrimp Pasta done in 20 minutes from start to finish, and I am so excited about how it turned out!

This blackened shrimp pasta recipe is full of flavor without being full of fat and cream.

Not that I don’t LOVE cream. Heavy whipping cream and I are like BFF’s, as the scale is clearly screaming at me – but once in a while it’s nice to have a little lighter dish to toss into the middle of the week in between my cheese filled, potato, and heavy cream-filled typical menu plans.

It’s also a huge bonus that it can be made SOOOOO fast. Time is at a serious premium these days, and with my current work schedule, I’ve been struggling to keep up with dinners and meal planning the past couple of months years.

Usually, dinner on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday consist of whatever I can just throw in the oven and heat up. As much as my family loves chicken tenders and reheated spaghetti – three nights a week gets a bit old, and my pocket can’t handle 1 or 2x’s a week of takeout.

You could toss in a few extra blue cheese crumbles if you are a big blue cheese fan, but the flavor of Spiceology’s Cajun Bleu Cheese Blend does such a wonderful job all on its own.

You could easily substitute chicken for this if your family can’t have shellfish or another kind of fish like salmon. Add in some more vegetables if you want, and customize it just to your liking.
