Friends, you all know I’m no gourmet chef. I have two brothers-in-law who are professional chefs, a soon to be sister-in-law who is a pastry chef, and a son whose aspiration in life is to meet and be like Chef John Besh. But as for me, I’m all about recipes that are quick and easy. Honestly? There’s very little I make from scratch. So, I’m always on the hunt for things I can turn into tasty dinners that won’t take up too much of my time. Recently, I had the opportunity to test out this recipe from Knorr that lets me turn a side dish into an entire meal…and it was good! Take a look:
CREAMY SHRIMP ALFREDO
1 package Knorr Pasta Sides – Alfredo
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 lb. uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
My store didn’t have cherry tomatoes or baby spinach, so I substituted grape tomatoes and “grownup” spinach torn into smaller pieces. You could also substitute any other vegetables you like!
1. Prepare Knorr Pasta Sides – Alfredo according to package directions, stirring in tomatoes and spinach during last five minutes of cooking time.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in large nonstick skillet and cook shrimp, stirring occasionally, until shrimp turn pink – about five minutes.
3. Stir cooked shrimp into hot pasta, sprinkle with cheese.
This was seriously so easy, you guys. If I can make it, trust me, you can make it. And it was deLICious! Honestly! Since hubby is lactose intolerant, I got it all to myself, and that was quite all right with me!
Not a seafood lover? Substitute 1 lb. boneless chicken for the shrimp and have yourself some Creamy Chicken Alfredo! You can’t go wrong!
