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!

    Quick and good I added scallops with the shrimp and chives instead of green onions my son loves this. It will be on rotation in my house.

  2. 5 stars
    This was great, although a made a couple of changes. I tried to rely on a quick cheese option but my package of shredded parmesan was moldy. Switched to queso quesadilla rallado instead and it melted and worked out lovely. As for the other change, I had some pepperoni I chopped up and sauted with the onion and garlic. Turned out to be another great addition. Lovely dish we will make again

  4. Beautiful website! I’ve just started scrolling around and absolutely love your recipes and pictures. I can spend a whole afternoon just reading cookbooks, so you and I are sure on the same page! Now, I’ll have to set my cookbooks aside so I’ll have time to roam around your site. This particular recipe for Creamy Shrimp and Pasta is great since fresh shrimp is plentiful where we live, and my husband and I just about live on it. I’m always looking for new ideas to cook up some more shrimp for dinner! Thanks for this yummy recipe and for your exceptionally pretty and informative, and FUN, website!

    1. I do really enjoy Cooking Light. I have probably hundreds of the magazines and dozens of their cookbooks. Always great recipes and ideas to be found there.
