A few years ago I was working with a brand that I love and they were having me do a morning show appearance. As part of the appearance they wanted me to share a SUPER simple dinner recipe. So a few days before the appearance I made and posted this One Pot Southwestern Alfredo Pasta.

A few things about this experience:

  1. I realized that I kind of love being in the spotlight . . . . like to an alarming degree. ????
  2. The people on the morning show were maybe the nicest humans I’ve ever met.
  3. They loved the pasta so much that they asked if they could keep the left overs and put it in the break room for the crew.

And it turns out that you guys love that recipe too!! That recipe has so many comments on it from people who loved it, and have made it for their family over and over again.

Turns out folks love creamy pasta one pot meals.

Go figure.

So I made a super simple one pot pasta recipe that is similar to that first one, but this time it is made with my Fajita Seasoning Recipe! It’s got all the staples of great shrimp fajitas in it, and it comes together so delicious and perfect in one pot!

THE BEST ONE POT MEAL

All you need to make this amazing one pot meal:

  • Shrimp – I kept the tails on mine to make for prettier pictures, but you feel free to take them off
  • Bell Peppers – I like using a mix of both red and green
  • Red Onion
  • Fettucine Noodles
  • Alfredo Sauce
  • Homemade Fajita Seasoning
