  • Meanwhile, season shrimp with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 4 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a plate and set aside.

  • Melt butter for Alfredo sauce in the same skillet. Cook garlic, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add cream cheese cubes and Cajun seasoning. Whisk sauce to smooth out any large lumps. Slowly pour in milk, about 1/4 cup at a time, while continuing to whisk.

  • Add Parmesan cheese, roasted pepper blend, and black pepper. Stir well to combine. Continue to cook and stir until sauce reaches desired thickness, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  • Drain pasta and add to the skillet. Toss to coat evenly and top with shrimp. Serve garnished with parsley.
