  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 4 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Melt butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat. Saute shrimp for 1 minute on each side. Stir in garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon; set aside. Stir in flour and Cajun seasoning. Cook, stirring for 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in milk, then cook until thickened. Remove from heat, and season with salt and lemon juice. Return shrimp to sauce, and spoon over cooked pasta.

This recipe isn't bad. It does need a little help at the end. We found by adding 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and litle extra salt and pepper made a world of difference...

This one will become a regular at our house. We all liked it! I added red bell pepper when I sauteed the garlic. Add the bell pepper first, then garlic, then the shrimp. Watch the shrimp closely...

I used to work in a restaurant which served a similar dish. It was my favorite! I gave this recipe a shot in hopes it would be just a tasty. It was close. Though my husband and I like spicy ...

Very tasty and spicy! Next time I will use a little less cajun seasoning - probably only 1 tbsp. To avoid the "flour taste" as one reviewer had, add more butter or margarine to cook the flour....

Very good. We really ejoyed this. I used 2 cloves garlic, 1/8cup flour, 1 TBSP Creole seasoning & added red bell pepper, Zucchini & mushrooms. We will be doing this again.

Maybe my cajun seasoning was extra spicy but, as written, this recipe is so spicy that we had to throw the whole thing out and I only used about 1 1/2T! I like spicy food but this was over the ...

VERY tasty:-) I substituted McCormick's Steak Rub for the cajun seasoning & it turned out great! However, when adding the seasoning to the skillet, you must only combine it with the butter unt...

Pretty good... the flour adds more of a "gravy" flavor in stead of a "sauce" flavor...
