Cajun Shrimp Pasta


1 lb medium raw shrimp, shelled & deveined

1 tbsp Cajun seasoning

2 tsp olive oil


8 oz gluten free penne pasta

1 tbsp olive oil

3-4 garlic cloves minced

1 red onion, diced

2 bell peppers, diced

1 tbsp cajun seasoning

1/2 tsp chili powder, or to taste

14 oz crushed tomatoes, one can

1 lime, juice and zest

Kosher salt and ground pepper, to taste

3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped


Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Meanwhile, place the shrimp into a ziploc bag and add in the cajuns seasoning and oil. Stir through the bag to completely coat the shrimp with the spices.

Heat a large rimmed pan over medium heat. Add the shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2-4 minutes. Set aside.

To the same pan add 1 tbsp of oil and saute the garlic for 1 minute.

Stir in the onion, bell peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until veggies soften.

Stir in the cajun seasoning plus chili powder, and cook for 1 minute more, or until fragrant. Add the crushed tomatoes, juice and lime zest. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Simmer for about 5 minutes to allow the flavors to mild.

Stir in the cooked pasta and the shrimp, and top with grated parmesan and chopped parsley.
