Cajun Shrimp Linguine Alfredo

HAPPY FRIDAY! It seems that I have only been posting on Fridays lately since I've been so busy with school these past few weeks! Well, this whole week I have been jonesing for some Alfredo pasta! One of my favorite Alfredo recipes is one my dad showed me how to make. I love this combination-- CAJUN + SHRIMP + AlFREDO = HEAVEN <3

This recipe is amazing and has the perfect flavor. It's one of my go-to "comfort food" options during a busy week of school and work... but at least I can bulk it up with some veggies to make my tummy happy.
