Tuesdays at the Table

TuesdaysAtTheTable



Today I'm going to join in Tuesdays at the Table over at My Chihuahua Bites! Every week Andrea puts up great recipes and then has a Mr. Linky on her post where everyone can add a link to their own food related post. It's great fun!


The recipe I'm going to post today is kinda made up. My husband and I LOVE shrimp, so about once every couple of weeks I make Shrimp Pasta. It's YUM!


Here's the ingredients:


1 box Angel Hair Pasta or Linguine
1 pound medium size Shrimp (w/o tail)
1 bag fresh or frozen snap peas (you could substitute any veggie)
1 stick of butter (I've used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and it worked pretty good)
3 tbsp. Cream Cheese
3 tbsp. Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp. minced garlic
Old Bay Seasoning
extra Parmesan Cheese


Directions:

Boil your pasta. While pasta is boiling, steam shrimp in microwave. I like to use the new steamer bags. It's really quick and easy to clean up. While pasta is boiling and shrimp is steaming, put your butter, cream cheese, Parmesan, garlic and seasoning in a skillet. Let all of these ingredients melt together. When the shrimp is finished steaming, put your veggies in the microwave to steam for a few minutes. This really speeds things up. When pasta, shrimp, and veggies are finished cooking. Drain the water and toss the shrimp and snap peas into your skillet coating them with your sauce. Serve over pasta immediately. Top with extra Parmesan. YUM!


(Sorry for the fuzzy pic. I took it with my phone.)
Be sure to go over to My Chihuahua Bites and check out the other food posts. Andrea has a recipe for Smores Brownies and they look DELISH!

Happy Tuesday!
