Add the flavors of classic Louisiana cooking to this pasta and seafood dinner, and you'll have yourself a gourmet meal you'll want to make again and again. We love trying to recreate recipes from some of our favorite regions of the country, and we think we got it exactly right with this recipe for Creole Shrimp with Garlic Cream Sauce. It's got the perfect blend of spices that remind us of traditional Louisiana fare.

What to Do

  1. Peel shrimp, and devein, if desired. Combine Creole seasoning and red pepper; sprinkle over shrimp, tossing to coat.
