I forgot! I promised to post the recipe for our dinner tonight..
WARNING!!! This is not Diet food!!!
Tortellini Alfredo with Garlic Shrimp
2-3 packages Cheese tortellini (depending on the size, mine are 9 oz, I’m using 2 for 4 people)
1 8 oz package Cream Cheese room temperature
1 cup milk
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
2 heaping tbs. sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 clove garlic
3 tbs Butter
1 1/2 pounds raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined
Parsley, to garnish
Cook Tortellini as directed on package. While they are cooking, saute the shrimp in butter and garlic until pink in a separate pan. Don’t over-cook the shrimp, they will get chewy! Mix the cream cheese, milk and Parmesan cheese together.. add to hot, drained tortellini in the pot that you cooked it in. Cook on med-low for about 5 minutes, until heated through.
To Serve: Put the Tortellini in a serving dish, top with the Sauteed Shrimp. Sprinkle a little chopped parsley on top.
We are having Garlic Bread, Roasted Asparagus and a salad with it.
