Food Whore Alert: Shrimp Alfredo Pasta


Since I live by myself, I don’t feel the need to cook every night. I like to cook things that spread that I can take for lunch at work for more than 1 day and still possibly eat for dinner. Let’s be real, you waste money not eating leftovers. So since I’m trying to branch out and try different things, I’ve been trying new recipes. I recently found a recipe for Chicken Alfredo Pasta. It would be very costly if I cooked the pasta according to the recipe, so I created a quick and easy way to go about it. I also decided to use shrimp instead of chicken. Here’s what you’ll need:

1 box of pasta- you can use pretty much any kind of pasta noodles that you like. I’d prefer to use Garden Rotini, but elbow macaroni or even spaghetti noodles can work

1 jar of Alfredo sauce

1 bag of frozen mixed vegetables

1 bag of cooked/peeled shrimp

First, cook your pasta according to the directions on the box. You can cook your mixed vegetables at this time as well. Once the pasta is cooked, drain off the excess water. Return the pasta to the pot that you cooked it in, add the mixed vegetables, shrimp and finally the alfredo sauce. Stir and season with pepper.
