Shrimp Pasta

RileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb[3]I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes I feel like I’m giving my family the same kinds of things. They can kind of tell, too. Because when I make something like shrimp pasta, they say, “Wow, Mom! What’s the special occasion?”

Then I reflect that I’ve been making a lot of casseroles lately. :)

The nice thing about shrimp pasta is that it’s just as quick and easy as my casseroles, it's low on clean-up time, and it looks pretty on a plate. Attractive enough to serve for company, nice mix of tastes, and quick, too.

Simple Shrimp Pasta

IMG_20110201_122836 IMG_20110201_122856

8 oz angel hair pasta
1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup green peas (thawed if frozen)
5 oz garlic and herbs cream cheese spread
2 t butter
2.5 oz can sliced mushrooms
2 T milk
3/4 t dried dill weed or 2 t fresh

Cook pasta, according to package instructions. Cook peeled shrimp and mushrooms in butter. Sprinkle dill weed on top of shrimp. When shrimp are halfway cooked, add the garlic and herbs cream cheese spread and milk and heat until melted, stirring constantly. Stir in the peas to the shrimp mixture and cook until heated through. Spoon the shrimp mixture on top of the cooked pasta to serve.

Hope you’ll enjoy! This disappears quickly at my house. :)

Happy Birthday to Cleo and Happy Groundhog day! (Fingers crossed for an early spring…I’m posting this at midnight, so I’m still waiting to hear the news!)

And...I'm updating this post to make an important announcement--Early spring (yay!) is the word from the groundhog...and our friend Dave at My Year on the Grill has made an incredible chocolate bacon bark that my Lulu from the Memphis BBQ series is planning on putting on her menu immediately! Hope y'all will pop over to check it out. :)
