Cajun Style Pasta

    12 ounces linguine
    1 teaspoon butter or olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    8-12 medium size shrimp, peeled and deveined
    1/2 pound chicken breast meat, diced
    2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups of 1% milk
    2 tablespoons sherry
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne
    4 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    1/2 cup frozen peas
    Salt and black pepper to taste

  Prepare the linguine according to package directions.
 Drain and keep warm until ready to serve.
  Melt the butter in the center of a large non-stick skillet over
 medium-high heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the
 shrimp and chicken. Pan-fry until the chicken is cooked through,
 3-4 minutes. Whisk the flour, milk, sherry, and Parmesan cheese
 together. Pour into the skillet and bring to a boil while stirring.
  Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for about 5 minutes
 until the mixture has thickened, stirring occasionally. Add the
 cayenne and fold in the tomatoes and peas. Cook until heated
 through. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Arrange the
 linguine on individual plates and spoon the sauce over the top.
 Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
