*Note, it's not really an exact science with this recipe, adjust as needed for the amount of people you are feeding.
Shrimp and Garlic Pasta
2 packages (one package serves about two people) - Creamy Garlic Shells (Knorr Italian Sides)
Large or Jumbo - deveined, uncooked shrimp (about 6 per person)
*1/2 cup fresh cilantro
*1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes
Prepare garlic shells according to package. While that is cooking, soak shrimp in warm water to thaw if frozen or simply rinse and drain. Chop cilantro and tomatoes, set aside.
When shells are done cooking, put in microwave safe bowl, add shrimp, cilantro and tomatoes. Cook in microwave for about 5 minutes, being careful to not overcook shrimp so they become rubbery.
*you can adjust the measurement of cilantro and tomatoes depending on how much you like of either. I tend to add more tomato and less cilantro since I'm not a big cilantro fan. I also usually use 4 packages of the shells for my family and maybe adjust the cilantro and tomatoes by 1/4 to 1/3 cup, not exactly doubling and the flavor is still there.
Serve with salad and garlic bread! This meal takes about 30 minutes total to make and it is delicious!
