This recipe for Fettuccine with Shrimp in a Sweet Red Pepper Cayenne Sauce will rock your dinner table. I was first introduced to this recipe by a cousin of mine who found it on Epicurious. I have modified it to suit my taste. You can decide how spicy you want to make it and can finish this recipe within 15 minutes for under $20 total for a family of four. If you are local to Charlotte, grab your super fresh shrimp from The Carolina Meat and Fish Co.

Melt butter in pan. Add red pepper, minced garlic, and cayenne pepper.

Toss and allow to cook for about 7 minutes…just enough to soften the peppers. Add the shrimp, whipping cream and chicken broth. Cook for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes (as soon as the shrimp turn pink they are fully-cooked). Do NOT overcook the shrimp.

Add the Parmesan cheese. Allow mixture to thicken up for a few seconds then remove from heat. Toss in the basil and pour over cooked fettuccine or your favorite pasta…ENJOY! Make extra for leftovers the next day!!!
