shrimp recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs shrimp (cleaned)
  • 2 boxes penne pasta (or pasta of your choice)
  • 1 jar of Alfredo sauce (14 oz)
  • 2 cups (ish) milk
  • 4 cloves of garlic (diced)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red pepper (diced)
  • 1 medium onion (diced)
  • fresh basil (chopped)
  • 2 cans (14oz each) of diced tomatoes
  • Parmesan cheese (fresh grated)
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • Salt to taste

Directions

  1. Cook pasta per box directions.
  2. Add olive oil, garlic, onion, and pepper to saute pan and cook until onion and pepper is softened.
  3. Add the canned tomatoes (do not drain) and Alfredo sauce.   Fill Alfredo jar 3/4 full with milk, shake to get remaining Alfredo sauce, and add milk to the pan.  Add shrimp.  Add salt to taste.
  4. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium for 5 to 6 minutes until shrimp are completely pink.
  5. In separate pan, cook asparagus until just tender when stuck with a fork (but not too soft).  Either serve on the side, or once cooked, chop asparagus unto 1 inch lengths and add to the sauce.
  6. Serve the pasta with sauce and top with a pinch of chopped fresh basil and freshly grated Parmesan cheese to taste.

Total cooking time (prep too) – 20 to 30 minutes.

  1. I can’t wait for the Twitter party tomorrow! I made a similar recipe tonight – well, used the idea of cooking one thing earlier in the week (roast chicken) and repurposing later in the week (BBQ chicken pizza!) Can’t wait to learn how to maximize those tips tomorrow…
