Creamy Shrimp and Pasta - succulent shrimp in a creamy Parmesan sauce served over egg noodles.
I got a new cookbook! (and BeeBop's looking at me like, "yeah, so what else is new?")
I do love cookbooks. I have an extensive collection.
No, it's not an obsession. It's...it's...it's just a collection. Really it is.
This new one is Cooking Light's Superfast Suppers and it has some really great sounding, quick to prepare dishes. I'll probably feature several of them over the next few weeks. Because, you know, I'm not a recipe developer or anything like that. I mean I don't sit around thinking up new recipes. I'm nowhere near that creative.
I do, however, love to try new recipes from cookbooks, magazines, newspapers...wherever I find them! And the one I tried tonight, this Creamy Shrimp and Pasta, is a definite winner though I did change it around a little bit.
The original recipe calls for half scallops and half shrimp, but I didn't have scallops so we wound up with all shrimp. Not a problem for me!
