Earlier this year and as a 30 before 30 Goal, I made the decision to cook more. Sunday dinners are always in my apartment, but I barely even make a salad most days. Since I was home alone on Valentine’s day I took the initiative to stop being lazy and make dinner for myself. Out of the hundreds (possibly more) recipes on my Pinterest board, I decided to make Shrimp Alfredo With Rotelle Pasta and wanted to have dinner sooner than later, so I purchased pre-packaged shrimp and Alfredo sauce.
- Medium sizesd shrimp (I chose the SeaPak brand and purchased extra pre-cooked, deveined shrimp later on)
- Rotelle Pasta
- 1 jar of Alfredo Sauce (you can also make the Alfredo sauce from scratch)
As you can see, I bought the generic Stop and Shop branded pasta and Alfredo sauce. I personally don’t see a difference in taste, but the price is a big difference (couldn’t beat .89 cents a pack). I cooked the rotelle pasta according to the package directions, drained the water and emptied the contents into a bowl when it was fully cooked.
Cooking the shrimp using SeaPak was super easy. As mentioned, I made the shrimp scampi and Alfredo sauce from scratch before, so just emptying the contents on a heated skillet wasn’t bad at all. It took about 10 minutes for the butter to melt and after seasoning, I added the extra shrimp into the mixture.
When everything was done, I added some mixed vegetables to my plate just so I can look like I’m eating healthy. 🙂
I’ve since seen a recipe for Cajun Shrimp Alfredo. I think the next time around, I’ll be making it.
