  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 4-6
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 pound dry pasta
  • 1 pint heavy crème
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T minced garlic
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 T Cajun seasoning
  • 1 T Smoked sweet paprika seasoning
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup white wine
  • fresh ground pepper
  • 1 T freshly chopped parsley
  • Parmesan cheese (I personally like Pecorino Romano for this dish)

Directions

  • 1. In large stockpot, boil water for pasta.
  • 2. In a large sauté pan, heat 2 T olive oil over medium heat. When shimmering, add onions. Fry for 2 minutes. Add garlic, fry additional 1 minute until fragrant. Add the white wine. Using your spatula, scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Let the wine reduce to half – about 3 minutes. In the meantime, boil your pasta, ending one minute shy of done.
  • 3. Add Cajun seasoning, salt, pepper and paprika. Add heavy crème. When the crème mixture is almost bubbling, turn heat to low. Let the crème mixture reduce to half – about 5 minutes. Drain the pasta well – add pasta to the crème sauce. Toss with freshly chopped parsley and some Pecorino Romano cheese. Eat. Have seconds.
