I've raved about Pinterest before, but I just can't get enough of it. I have found so many amazing recipes through Pinterest, it's unreal. I'm at this point in my cooking "career" that I can look at a recipe and instantly know if we'll love it or not. I know how flavors combine, I know in general how one ingredient will affect another, and in general I know before I even make a recipe if it'll work. When I saw this recipe it was originally called "crispy shrimp pasta" and it seemed pretty good. I knew we'd like it with a few small modifications and I was very right. This pasta was just awesome. The cajun seasoning really complimented the cream sauce. The whole time I was eating it I kept saying, "John this is super good, right? You like it, right? Don't you love it?" Needless to say John
