Remove the cream cheddar from the refrigerator 30+ minutes before beginning the recipe (or microwave it for 20-30 seconds). Heat up a salted pot of water for the pasta and cook it still somewhat firm as per bundle bearings. Assuming the shrimp are frozen, defrost them under cool running water. Strip them (leave tails on assuming you need). Wipe shrimp off. Cut the chicken into 1″ pieces. Sprinkle the shrimp and chicken with the garlic powder and 1/2 tablespoon of Cajun preparing. Add the oil to a profound skillet over medium-high intensity, and when the dish is hot, cook the shrimp for around 3 minutes (flip once), then, at that point, move them to a plate. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes or until cooked through, mixing incidentally (let it brown a little). Move it to a similar plate as the shrimp. Take the skillet off the intensity and include the spread, cream, cream cheddar, staying 1/2 tablespoon of Cajun preparing, and garlic. Return the skillet to the oven (decrease intensity to medium), and mix for two or three minutes until the cream cheddar has broken up in the sauce. Allow the sauce to bubble tenderly for around 2-3 minutes, or until it’s somewhat thickened. Mix in the parmesan and afterward add the shrimp and chicken back to the container. Allow it to warm through several minutes. Season with additional salt and pepper depending on the situation. I like to add a sprinkle of hot pasta water (a tablespoon or two) to the skillet preceding depleting the fettuccine to thin the sauce somewhat (discretionary). Throw the depleted pasta with the sauce and serve right away. I like to add somewhat more ground parmesan and some hacked parsley. A press of lemon is flavorful as well!

Enjoy !
