Day 89, Shrimp Alfredo

I had some shrimp I needed to use up, so I decided to throw some alfredo sauce on them.

Shrimp Alfredo

1 bag medium cooked shrimp, peeled, deveined and tailless
1/3 box spaghetti noodles
1 jar Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo sauce

Cook noodles according to packaging. During last 30 seconds of cooking, add shrimp to heat. Drain; add alfredo sauce and mix well. Serve with shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Serves 4-5

I had cooked shrimp because it's usually the cheaper choice. I managed to get this bag on sale with a coupon for 99 cents. You have to be cautious when heating cooked shrimp so you don't cause them to become too small. By only heating them for 30 seconds in the boiling water, it heated them up without shriveling them. The roasted red pepper alfredo was a different taste which I accidentally picked up one day, but it ended up being tasty.

Flavor Rating: Great, I really enjoyed this alfredo sauce.

Ease of Preparation: Easy, to take the tails off the shrimp, grip at the base of the tail and pull the end of the shell. It leaves the meat from the tail while taking the shell off.
