Cajun Seafood Pasta

While on my binge of Cajun-seasoned foods, I was shopping and found a little pack of frozen scallops.  Because of my mom, I’ve been bred to believe that fresh is the ONLY way to cook, but hey; I’m twenty and only work around twenty hours a week, so I have to improvise!  Next to the scallops was a little pack of “salad shrimp,” so I grabbed that too and decided to make a delicious Cajun Seafood dish.

1 box long pasta (linguine preferred, but I didn’t have any)
1/2 pack cream cheese, in small chunks
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
2 garlic cloves, diced or crushed
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup spinach, chopped
1 pack frozen scallops
1 pack frozen shrimp, optional
Parmesan cheese, to taste

1. Cook pasta to box instructions.
2. Melt butter over medium heat in a pan.  Saute garlic for a few minutes, then add cream cheese and milk.  Break down cream cheese and whisk in with milk.
3. When sauce is uniform (add more milk if needed), add in Cajun seasoning, scallops, and shrimp.  Unless specified differently on scallop packages, cook for about ten minutes, stirring occasionally so that the sauce doesn’t stick or burn.
4. At this point, add spinach.  You can add Parmesan cheese if you want (and why wouldn’t you?  It makes everything way yummier).  Mix your sauce with your pasta, and enjoy!
