Spicy Cajun Shrimp Linguine

Kyla Stuhlmiller


I got this out of a cookbook my Nana(maternal grandmother) sent me for Christmas this year. It sounded yummy so when it was my night to cook for myself and my neighbors I decided to try it. I was a bit iffy about it after I cooked it because I don't like runny pasta sauce. But I wasn't disappointed! There wasn't any left!
