Blackened Shrimp Pasta – a quick and easy shrimp pasta made with homemade blackened seasoning for tons of great flavor!
Did you know that October is National Pasta Month? At Dreamfields, they like to call it #HealthyPastaMonth. I am excited to be working with them again this year, on this project. You may remember last year when I made an Easy Weeknight Lasagna. One of my most popular recipes, and pretty easy to see why! Well, this week the theme is Spice of Life – it is all about spicing things up, and adding some “oomph” by using herbs and spices. Making your own blacken seasoning seemed like the perfect way to go!
Weekends are all about relaxing, taking time off, and enjoying life with friends and family. But you don’t always want to spend all day in the kitchen cooking to impress your friends. This Blackened Shrimp Pasta is a great solution. It comes together in about 20 minutes! Your friends will never know how quickly and how little effort you put into the meal. They will just know how flavorful and delicious it is. The list of ingredients for this recipe does look long. But it is so easy – most of it is just measuring spices in a bowl, and then sprinkling it over the shrimp. The nice thing about making your own spice blend, is you can adjust the heat and flavors to what you like. So play with it and find your favorite combination.
I love using Dreamfields pasta in recipes, because it is such an easy way to eat a little better. Each serving of pasta contains 5 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of plant protein. Add super low calorie, healthy shrimp and you have a dinner fit for entertaining or a quick weeknight meal. We eat a lot of shrimp at our house, but this shrimp pasta got rave reviews. Definitely a keeper and can’t wait to make it again!
