The sauce here is made from a mixture of cream cheese, sour cream and milk. This creates a lusciously creamy sauce without the need for flour to thicken it, great for people following a gluten free diet (ensure your pasta is GF).

When you first add the cream cheese and sour cream to the pan, it will look bitty and lumpy, don’t panic, just stir the sauce slowly and the cheese and sour cream will melt into the milk to create your sauce.

The Louisiana shrimp are coated in creole seasonings and then flash fried until almost cooked. White wine is then added to add flavour and the steam cooks the shrimp through. They then get added to the sauce at the very end of the dish.

Serving Suggestion:

Side: Serve this non-Italian creamy Louisiana Shrimp pasta with a warm sweetcorn salad dressed with butter and black pepper. Or add some crusty bread to mop up the sauce.

Wine: The Creole seasoning in the Louisiana shrimp pair well with several wines, but with the creamy sauce this dish will be perfect with a Prosecco or a sparkling rose.
For red lovers this shrimp pasta could carry a Pinot noir, but avoid any high alcohol high tannin reds as they will create a very spicy aftertaste.
