Dinner Tonight: Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese
Started my day off with a Poached Egg. Then I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole
Grain Bread, topped with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, and made my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice start to the day! In the 20's to start the day and reached into the 40's for a high but had rain showers on and off throughout the day. Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Then I had to repair a shelf in the pantry. And that was pretty much it for the day. Settled in for an afternoon of Football and Basketball. For Dinner tonight I prepared Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese.
For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let
them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat I cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.
I’ve prepared this several times now, sometimes I make it using Chicken but Shrimp is my favorite.
Rice – A – Roni, Pasta Roni is an Angel Hair Pasta in a Parmesan Sauce with other natural flavors. It comes with the Pasta Parm Sauce and I added; 1 1/3 cups of water, 2/3 cups of 2% milk, and 2 tablespoons of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Then to prepare it; In a medium saucepan bring water, milk, margarine or butter to a boil. Then slowly stir in pasta and Special Seasonings. Separate pasta with a fork, if needed. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium. Boil uncovered, 4-5 min. or until pasta is just tender, stirring frequently. Sauce will be thin. Let stand 3-5 min. to thicken. There’s 2 servings per box. Nice seasoning and the Parmesan Sauce is very flavorful. I topped the Pasta with some Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese and the Shrimp. Too good, this makes one delicious Shrimp and Pasta Dish! Love these Semi-Homemade Meals! I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread and had a Coke Zero to drink. For Dessert later I had a Weight Watcher's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.
