You can always save this for a special event and impress your guests, but why not treat yourself right now!

Total Time: 20 minutes
8 ounces fettuccine or your favorite pasta
1 tablespoon butter
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon cajun seasoning

1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
1 cup heavy/whipping cream

1/2 tablespoon cajun seasoning or to taste

Start cooking the pasta.
Melt the butter in a pan over medium-high heat, toss the shrimp in the cajun seasoning, add to pan and cook, about 2-3 minutes per side, and then set aside.
Add the garlic to the pan and saute until fragrant, about a 30 seconds.
Deglaze the pan with the wine, add the heavy cream, parmesan and cajun seasoning and cook until it thickens a bit, about 3-5 minutes.
Toss the pasta in with the alfredo sauce along with the shrimp and serve garnished with green onions.
