Creamy Jerk Pasta
Talk about a great weeknight dinner that’ll please the whole family! What’s not to love about fun shaped pasta in a creamy satisfying sauce with plenty of veggies and rich flavor from Casa M Spice Co® Jerked Chain® seasoning? Grill some jerk shrimp or slice jerk chicken to top this pasta with and you’ve got a dinner to write home about!
We used bowtie pasta for this recipe, but you can substitute any type of pasta you’d prefer. You can even swap in your choice of veggies. Not a fan of bell pepper? Try celery or mushrooms. Just remember to chop them small so they cook quickly and evenly. We chose bell peppers for the light tangy flavor and because they become tender very quickly in the heat of the simmering sauce.
As always, from our table to yours... #SpiceConfidently #EssenceOfFlavor #ChemistryInTheKitchen #CasaMSpice
