Blackened Seafood Pasta

Blackened Seafood Pasta 1

My sister-in-law and in-laws are all here…spoiling Shea. And Lily.

Shea got cuddles galore and Lily got to go to the dog park.

And me? I got to lay in bed with my laptop, my Kindle, the TV, and of course, a pillow. I literally had no idea what to do with myself. TOO. MANY. CHOICES!

What did I do? I typed up this amazing recipe to share with you.

Friends, I am that committed to you. I am wed to this blog and to sharing amazing food with the foodies of the world. In case you ever doubted that. Unlikely the case, but there is your affirmation.

Do you see the decent-ish pictures of this dish? The pasta is always a sure bet, but then the scallops? AND shrimp? AND sausage? AND the creamy not-so-sinful cream sauce? Oh my goodness, this is protein heaven meets carb heaven in one knock-your-socks-off dish.

For reals.

There’s good food and then there’s not-so-great food. And sometimes, there’s AMAZING food. This dish falls into the latter. Phenomenal, I tell you. Assuming, of course, that you enjoy the same kind of food as me – some heat (hello, blackened seasoning and lots of it!), some meat (no need to choose – you get scallops, shrimp, and sausage in this one!), and some carb (paaaaaaasta!).

And before you go thinking that this goodness comes with a hefty time commitment…it’s a quick meal, too!
