      1 pound peeled, uncooked shrimp

      1 pound smoked sausage, sliced into ¼ inch pieces

      2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning, divided

      2 tablespoons butter

      2 tablespoons olive oil

      1/4 cup finely diced  onion

      1 red pepper sliced into thin strips

      1 green pepper sliced into thin strips

      2 cloves garlic, minced

      1 cup

      1 pint heavy cream

      1 pound fettuccini, cooked and drained

      1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

      3 to 4 chopped scallions


      Place shrimp and 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning in a bowl.  Toss to coat.

      In a large skillet over medium heat cook shrimp in butter for a few minutes until it starts to turn pink. Remove from plate and set aside.   Add  oil  to the same pan along with sausage and onions and peppers. Cook a few minutes until veggies just start to soften.   Add garlic.  Cook another 30 seconds.   Add chicken stock, heavy cream and additional Cajun seasoning.   Turn up heat. Simmer a few minutes.  Whisk in Parmesan cheese.  Add shrimp and pasta.  Toss and  heat through. If too thick add more cream.  Serve with scallions on top.  Note: If you want it less spicy, use less Cajun seasoning.
