Birda Mae's Recipe Corner:Alfredo Shrimp and Linguine

Pillsbury: One-Dish Meals Cookbook: More Than 300 Recipes for Casseroles, Skillet Dishes and Slow-Cooker Meals


  • 8oz.uncooked linguine broken into thirds
  • 11/2 cups frozen sweet peas
  • 3/4 cups refrigerated light Alfredo sauce
  • 1/4 cup fat-free halfand half or skim milk
  • 1lb. shelled deveined, cooked medium shrimp
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper 
In large saucepan, cook linguine to desired doneness as directed on package, addding peas. during  last 2-3minutes of cooking time. Pour into colandar to drain.

In same saucepan over low heat, combine Alfredo sauce,half and half, shrimp ,basil and pepper, mix well.  Add cooked linguine and peas; cook2 to 4 minutes or until throughly heated, stirring constantly.

I know this called for the fat free half and half but I used the regular and I added some garlic salt so it wouldn't be  bland but  2 out of my 3 kids ate it so that's a pretty good ratio!   I recently got this cookbook from the half price  book store ,I also promised myself to actually cook from it before I bought anymore so Cookbook Sundays will be right up my alley! (See the links).  For those of you who are visiting my blog for the first time welcome .My Usb cord is out so I will have to borrow images until I get that new one. I got the image and this recipe is linked to,Just something I Whipped up,Tuesday night supper club, ,cookbook sundays@Brenda'sCanadianKitchen and
a beautiful mess

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
