Spicy Shrimp Pasta

Spicy Shrimp Pasta

Start boiling water for pasta - I used linguini, but any pasta will do

Start 2 inch sauce pan on medium heat - add one tablespoon evoo, 8 oz container of sliced portabella mushrooms, 1/2 a fresh jalapeno diced, 3 garlic cloves diced, salt and pepper - sautee until mushrooms are 1/2 cooked and brown - add in 1/4 cup chicken broth bring to boil - add in shrimp and cook about 30 seconds each side -- not cooked through - remove shrimp from pan - add in 1/2 cup of chicken broth, 1 block of cream cheese (i believe it's 8oz), and 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning- bring to boil and stir until all cream cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth - you can add in more chicken broth if it looks too thick, remember it will thicken when cooled too. - when sauce is smooth add shrimp back in for about 1 minute

you can either serve on top of pasta or toss pasta into sauce - garnish with a sqeeze of lime juice on top and some fresh basil and tomatoes

Plate up and Enjoy!
