I made this tonight for dinner. I also added diced red peppers like PSU Lioness and some chopped onions. I didn't have fettucine so I used bow-tie pasta instead which did a good job of holding the sauce. For those who are sensitive to hot spices just use 1 teaspoon of Cajun spice instead of two. I served this with French bread. Very delicious.

This recipe was amazing! I had shrimp in the freezer forever and wasn't sure how I was ever going to use them, then I came upon this recipe. It was instantly a family favorite.

I tried this dish last night. It was hit with the family. I however, had Kroger steam the shrimp for me in cajun seasonings. I also used diced tomato in the can with chiles. A little kick but this will become a regular in my househould.
