Cajun Seafood Pasta

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1/2 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 pound scallops
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
1 pound fresh fettucine pasta
1 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 cup chopped green onions

 Reduce pepper amounts a bit unless you like this  very spicy.
As it is written, it is too spicy for most  people.

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente.

Meanwhile, pour cream into large skillet.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until just  about boiling.

Reduce heat, and add herbs, salt, peppers, onions, and parsley.
Simmer 7 to 8 minutes, or until thickened. Stir in seafood, cooking
until shrimp is no longer transparent. Stir in cheeses, blending

Drain pasta. Serve sauce over noodles. Makes 5 servings.
