Easy Shrimp & Pasta Dinner...

Pin It Now!
I love easy dinners for my family!
And you can never go wrong with these 3 favourites...pasta, shrimp & cheese.
This is also the perfect in make- ahead food...you can make this the day before it`s served or in the morning to serve at dinner.
 You can use any pasta that your family likes. I used bow-tie pasta, but penne or fusilli  pasta would work just as well.

I also used half regular pasta and half whole wheat pasta to increase the fibre.
{My family gets a little whiney when I use all whole wheat pasta.}
If your family doesn`t like shrimp, swap it out for chicken.
 
 Easy Shrimp & Pasta Dinner
 
 
Ingredients
6-7 cups cooked pasta
2 cups shrimp, peeled and tails off
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped red pepper
1 tbsp butter or olive oil
1 cup sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup or cheddar cheese soup
1 cup shredded cheese for top
1/2 sliced green onions for top, if desired
 
Directions:
1. In heated frying pan, add butter or olive oil. Add onion, celery, red pepper & garlic. Cook, stirring frequently,  until onion is translucent...about 4-5 minutes. Then add shrimp and fry until shrimp is cooked.
2. While veggies are cooking in frying pan, spread cooked pasta in large 9x13 casserole dish.
3. Add cooked veggies & shrimp, sour cream & mushroom soup to pasta in casserole dish. Stir with large spoon until mixed.
4. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and green onions.
5. Cover with foil and heat pasta & shrimp dish in 350 oven until cheese is melted and pasta & shrimp are hot....about 20 minutes. OR cover with foil place in fridge until 20 minutes before serving time, and then heat in oven.
6. Serve with a salad.
This makes a delicious dinner for hungry people.
This is a dish that I like to make in the morning and place in the fridge until dinner time.
It is such a good feeling knowing that dinner is taken care of!

It looks great - unfortunately shrimp isn't my thing, but I do love bow tie pasta!

Looks good! I'd want to swap the shrimp for chicken but my husband would want to keep the shrimp. It's been years since I tried shrimp, maybe my tastes have changed so I should give it another try.
