This pasta and shrimp recipe also includes peas and peppers. It's delicious!
Between sports practices, orchestra, school newspaper, PTA meetings and other night time activities, there is not much time to cook dinner. But I love making dinner for my family as much as possible.
Usually I have under an hour to cook dinner, serve it and clean up. I am always looking to make gourmet style meals that are quick and easy. Creamy Shrimp and Rigatoni with Sweet Peas and Peppers hits the jackpot.
One of my “go-to” ingredients is frozen shrimp. I keep a few bags in the freezer at all times. They are already cleaned and can be defrosted in no time. The shrimp also cook up in a matter of minutes, which makes them so great for adding to a variety of dishes.
In this simple recipe, I pair shrimp with pasta and veggies. It can be served with a simple salad or some fruit for a nice easy dinner.
One of the best things is that it can be reheated in the microwave for the nights where my family eats in shifts. It also makes great leftovers for lunch the next day.
I just love having meals that can pull double duty, and not worrying about what to have for lunch when the noon hour rolls around is such a blessing on a busy day.
There are nights where I make dinner early, feed the kids and then take the kids to where they need to go. My husband and I then eat dinner when we get home, when we have a bit more time to enjoy it.
The best part about eating this dinner is that it is perfect with a glass of white wine. Just add a nice loaf of garlic bread or perhaps some rolls and you can call it a day!
