Cajun Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

I did some experimenting the other night, and ended up absolutely loving my cajun shrimp fettuccine Alfredo recipe! It's very simple to make, and takes less than 30 minutes, which is my kinda dinner! I also incorporated some peppers and sun dried tomatoes, which I LOVE, and it made this recipe. I also quote a few times "to your liking" or "to your taste", I'm not much of a measuring kinda girl when I cook. I usually just throw things together to my liking! So excuse the improper, unmeasured recipe talk ;)

Check out how I made mine below, and enjoy!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: approximately 30

1 lb cooked and peeled shrimp -not peeled is fine, I had to peel mine. Sometimes cheaper ;)
1 box fettuccine noodles
1 TBSP Cajun seasoning
1 TBSP butter
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 can of sun dried tomatoes 
1 can of Classico Alfredo cause (I favor Classico, but you can use whatever brand you like, or make your own) 
Oregano Seasoning
Parmesan Cheese
Extra Virgin Olive Oil 

1.) Begin by boiling your water to get the noodles started, cook for about 10-15 minutes and drain when ready. 
2.) While noodles are boiling slice your red pepper, green pepper, and about half a jar of sun dried tomatoes. 
3.) Prepare your shrimp. Peel if needed, and place in a zip lock bag with 1 TBSP of cajun seasoning. Shake bag until all shrimp have been coated evenly with seasoning.
4.) Place a pan on medium heat with 1 TBSP of butter. Melt butter to cover the pan, and place seasoned shrimp on pan. Cook each side for approximately 2-3 minutes. After shrimp have cooked thoroughly, remove shrimp from pan and place to the side. Use a paper towel to wipe the excess butter and cajun seasoning from pan. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil to pan, enough to lightly cover the pan, and place shrimp back in the pan and add your peppers and sun dried tomatoes. Cook and stir for approximately 5 minutes. 
5.) Drain fettuccine when ready, and add your sauce of choice to the noodles. Add oregano seasoning to your liking. 
6.) Stir in cajun shrimp with peppers into your alfredo, and wa-la! Add parmesan to your taste.
Delicious, and super easy to make! Hope you enjoy yours! :)
