Ingredients You'll Need

  • 1 pound pasta (penne, rotini, or your favorite shape)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound cooked and peeled shrimp (or chicken, sausage, or vegetables)
  • 1/4 cup RA Seasonings Cajun

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional)
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, green bell pepper, and red bell pepper. Cook until softened, about 5-7 minutes.

  6. Add the cooked pasta to the skillet and toss to coat.
  7. Serve hot, garnished with fresh parsley if desired.
