Creamy Tomato-Basil Pasta with Shrimp

Posted on

I really enjoyed this pasta dish. It wasn’t too heavy and the shrimp were a nice bite of flavor. I think this dish would also work with chicken.

Ingredients:

3 cups farfalle (bow-tie pasta), uncooked
1/4 cup  Sun Dried Tomato Vinaigrette Dressing, divided
1 lb. uncooked peeled deveined medium shrimp
1 cup  fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp. each garlic powder and black pepper
4 oz.  (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) Neufchatel Cheese, cubed
2 cups grape tomatoes
1/2 cup  Shredded Parmesan Cheese
8 fresh basil leaves, cut into strips
Directions:

1. COOK pasta as directed on package. Meanwhile, heat 2 Tbsp. dressing in large skillet on medium heat. Add shrimp; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until shrimp turn pink. Use slotted spoon to remove shrimp from skillet; cover to keep warm. Discard any drippings in skillet.

2. ADD remaining dressing, broth and seasonings to skillet; cook 2 min. or until heated through. Add Neufchatel; cook and stir 2 to 3 min. or until melted. Stir in tomatoes; cook 1 min.

3. DRAIN pasta. Add to ingredients in skillet. Stir in Parmesan and half the basil; top with shrimp and remaining basil.

 

Serves 4.

Easy Teriyaki Chicken and Brown Rice

Posted on

I loved this dish! So easy and so delicious! The only change is that I added the entire bottle of teriyaki sauce! I’m not sure why 1/3 cup didn’t cut it, but I kept adding the sauce until it had the taste I wanted, and by the time I was done, the entire bottle was gone!

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp. oil
1 lb.  boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1-1/2 cups water
1/3 cup  teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups  instant brown rice, uncooked
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1/3 cup salted peanuts
Directions:

1. HEAT oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 5 to 7 min. or until done.

2. ADD next 3 ingredients; stir. Bring to boil.

3. STIR in remaining ingredients; cover. Cook on low heat 5 min. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 min. Fluff with fork.

Serves 4.
