30 Day Dinner Challenge: #12

I needed something quick and fairly easy last night so went with Cajun Shrimp Pasta.

I was finally able to test out my new seasoning I got from Dollar Tree. 🦐 Loved it!! Tasted very similar to the seasoning in the Cajun pasta at Red Lobster.

Total Cost: $5.50

1 box of penne pasta (.49 cents)

2 jars of Alfredo sauce ( .99 x 2 = $1.98)

10 oz of frozen wild caught/peeled/deveined shrimp ($2.99)

Seasoning (@ .04)

  1. Defrost shrimp according to package

  1. Cook pasta – drain

  2. Cook shrimp in skillet – add Cajun seasoning and black pepper

  3. Heat Alfredo sauce

  4. Add sauce to cooked shrimp

  5. Add shrimp Alfredo sauce to pasta

  6. Stir and serve

Dinner Challenge:

12 down – 18 to go
