Ingredients
  • 1 pound dry pasta
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon cajun or creole seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon smoked sweet paprika seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. In large stockpot, boil salted water for pasta. Cook pasta 1 minute shy of package instructions. Drain pasta. (You can cook the Creamy Cajun Sauce while the pasta boils.)

  2. In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. When shimmering, add onions. Cook for 2 minutes. Add garlic, cook additional 30 seconds until fragrant. 

  3. Add the white wine. Let the wine reduce to half – about 3 minutes. 

  4. Add cajun seasoning, salt, paprika and tomato paste. Stir.

  5. Add heavy cream. When the cream mixture is almost bubbling, turn heat to low. Let the cream mixture reduce to half – about 2 minutes. Add the pasta to the cream sauce and cook additional minute. Toss with freshly chopped parsley and parmesan cheese.
