Creamy Cajun Pasta with Shrimp Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add bacon and cook, stirring occasionally about 2 minutes. Add shrimp, bell pepper, garlic, Cajun seasoning and pepper. Cook stirring, until the bell pepper is beginning to soften, about 3-4 minutes. Cook shrimp until it is opaque.
  3. Add tomatoes and their juice; bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring often, until the sauce is bubbling and reduce until thickened. 
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in Amazin Mayo.
  5. Add chopped onions to a bowl and heat in microwave 2-3 minutes. You may add a little bit of water to help steam them. Once heated drain water.
  6. Stir the pasta and onion into the sauce. Serve sprinkled with scallions, if desired.
