Creole Garlic Alfredo over Cheese Stuffed Tortellini w/Cajun Shrimp & Scallops

  • To make the dish even more flavorful, try adding a pinch of cayenne pepper to the sauce for a little extra heat.
  • If you prefer a creamier sauce, try adding a splash of half-and-half or milk to the skillet before adding the parmesan cheese.
  • For a vegetarian version, you can replace the seafood with sautéed vegetables such as mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions.

Helpful tips and tricks for cooking the pasta, seafood, and sauce :

– To ensure that the pasta cooks evenly, be sure to stir it occasionally while it cooks.

– To prevent the seafood from becoming tough and rubbery, be sure not to overcook it.

– To make the alfredo sauce even creamier, you can add a splash of heavy cream or half-and-half.

Provide cooking times and temperatures :

– Cook the pasta according to the package instructions, typically around 8-10 minutes.

– Cook the shrimp and scallops for about 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat.

– Cook the alfredo sauce over medium-low heat for about 2-3 minutes.


– To make this dish gluten-free, use gluten-free pasta or zucchini noodles instead of tortellini.

– To make this dish vegetarian, use vegetable broth or white wine instead of chicken broth and use mushrooms or tofu instead of shrimp and scallops.

Offer suggestions for incorporating other flavors or ingredients

– To add more depth of flavor, try adding herbs such as parsley, basil or thyme to the sauce.

– To add more creaminess, try adding more cheese to the sauce like gouda or blue cheese.

Provide recipes for related dishes that complement the Creole garlic alfredo pasta

– A simple green salad with balsamic vinaigrette or Caesar salad would complement the dish nicely.

– A crusty French or Italian bread would also be a great addition to the dish.

Tip or suggestion

– For a more authentic Creole and Cajun flavor, try using a blend of Creole or Cajun seasoning instead of individual herbs and spices.
