Cajun Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

By ~Brandy~ - 3:31 PM

Being from Louisiana, I have to share with you a tasty recipe that I know you will love.

My husband is born and raised in Missouri and I had to convince him that cajun food is amazeballs, but it took many years for me to make that happen. Lots of cooking and making him taste it just to turn his nose up in disdain. 

The old saying that if you try or taste it at least three times you will start to like it, is true. It took persistence and lots of failed attempts but I finally got him to eat all the things I enjoy that he never liked...crawfish, shrimp, chicken, sausage, gumbo, etc he will eat now!!

He asked me to make this for supper tonight, so here ya go!
