This is one of those "pantry meals" I've been wanting to share forever! We eat this when I can get the Shrimp Alfredo on sale at Publix. They'll put it on BOGO and with a coupon it's only about $2.00. Just my speed! The other thing we try to keep in the pantry is pasta. I ran out a few months ago. Can you believe that?! I couldn't either. But I thought I had some pasta in there, but when I went to get it, it was gone. The stores never let me down and shortly thereafter, pasta was on BOGO. I bought some of the Healthy Harvest whole wheat pasta to give it a try. Sometimes the whole wheat tastes funny when paired with tomato sauce, so I like to eat it with alfredo sauce. That's when Shrimp Alfredo Pasta was born...
Shrimp Alfredo Pasta
whole wheat pasta $.25
packet McCormick Garlic Alfredo sauce $.25
12 oz can 2% evaporated milk $.19
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Sea Pak Alfredo Shrimp $2.00
Cook pasta according to box directions.
Mix McCormick Garlic Alfredo sauce according to packet directions, but use evaporated milk and butter. Once thickened, pour over prepared pasta.
In a skillet over medium heat, warm oil and minced garlic for 2 minutes. Add entire contents of Alfredo Shrimp to skillet, cover with lid and cook until shrimp are cooked through, about 8-10 minutes. Combine everything together and serve with parsley.
It's pretty easy and quick. And I used up some stockpiled ingredients!
