I’m kicking this series off ( again) with my version of Seafood Louie Pasta. This pasta is full of well seasoned jumbo shrimp, and chunks of crab ( or imitation crab) meat. As stated in my video, I am s fan of imitation crab, but if you’re not use real crab, or lobster meat. I used regular rotini pasta for this recipe, but sometime I use tri-color rotini.
You will need a nice grade of jarred Alfredo Sauce for this pasta. Here are some of my favorite brands

Again, I used jumbo shrimps which were about 12-14 a lb. I prefer larger shrimp with this dish. If you want to replace the jumbo shrimp with smaller shrimps, that should be fine!
This meal is quite easy to make, and I think you will enjoy it!
Don’t forget to watch my video demonstration 🙂
