I have always been obsessed with pasta, especially any that involve alfredo sauce 🤤. It’s one of the reasons I just couldn’t last on keto.
My husband likes a kick to his food, so the cajun spices are the perfect touch of flavor and spice to this cajun shrimp alfredo pasta recipe. Honestly, he doesn’t even know it’s a healthy recipe. Yeah, it’s that good!
It’s spicy though, so it’s one thing we cannot share with our toddler. But if you have kids who like spicy food then it’s totally fine.
Also, if you want less spice just don’t add as much cajun spices.
Either way, this recipe is loaded with protein, good carbs and good fats. Make sure you give it a try!

    Hi guys. So sorry! It’s the same thing 🙂 I just wasn’t paying attention when I wrote it out. I just separated them because you will use it at 2 different points in the recipe, so this way it will be easier for you to measure separately- am I making sense?
