Creamy Cajun Pasta Sauce

 

So, the other day I made this creamy cajun pasta sauce and I wasn’t quite sure how it would turn out. Needless to say, it was amazing. It has also been one of the most searched recipes on my blog in the past month. Before you read too far, this recipe isn’t vegan or dairy free or any of that.

Lately, I’ve actually been getting as far away from food labels as possible. That’s not to say that I don’t respect anyone else’s food choices, but that’s just how I’m feeling at the moment. This time of the year especially, I feel as though food should be enjoyed without worrying about restrictions and labels. Know what I mean?

Anyway, on to the pasta. So whenever I want pasta that has a little extra protein in it, I choose Modern Table pasta. They have complete protein pasta meaning that it contains the essential amino acids that we need. Good stuff right? I love their pasta because it’s filling and it’s also super tasty. Plus the texture is really good. In my experience, some protein pasta can have a strange texture but this one is not like that at all.

Okay, on to the sauce. It’s pretty indulgent, so if indulgent is not your thing, then this pasta sauce is not for you. It is made with real, wholesome ingredients as always though. It includes these ingredients:

Modern Table Pasta

Onions

Garlic

Basil
