6. Jerk Chicken + Shrimp Pasta by Wine Weed Wife

Pasta is one of the most versatile foods in the world; When you make it at home, you pay 99 cents for a box and another 3 bucks for a jar of sauce–but somehow, at a restaurant, a teeny tiny portion costs $20. Make it make sense!

Obviously, buying some pre-made ingredients and heating them up on a stove isn’t gonna be the same as something homemade, which is why this Jerk Chicken + Shrimp Pasta is so great. It’s a break from the normal pasta dish you’d make at home and it combines fresh ingredients with a thick, creamy sauce. What more could you ask for?


Here’s a list of ingredients, but you can check out the whole recipe at Wine Weed Wife’s website here.

  • 1 lb penne noodles

  • olive oil

  • 6 – 8 chicken thighs, boneless, skinless

  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled & deveined

  • 1 medium white or yellow onion, diced

  • 1 of each, red, yellow, and green bell peppers, julienned

  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes

  • 2 tbsp Jamaican jerk paste (I used hot)

  • 4 tbsp blackening seasoning

  • 1 qt heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

  • 2 tbsp Goya adobo

  • 2 tbsp Garlic powder

  • 1 tbsp Onion powder
