I’m always trying to find quick and easy dinner recipes – tonight I decided to use something normally left for side dishes and make it a main dish! Knorr Pasta Sides are available in 13 flavors – from Alfredo to Scampi and Butter to Chicken. They’re delicious and FAST – which is what I need after working all day.
Knorr and Giant Eagle have teamed up to provide a Free Recipe Book for their side dishes. You just add a couple extra ingredients – like shrimp, spinach and cherry tomatoes – and you’ll have a main dish that everybody will love!
Giant Eagle also has a special going on now through March 4 – buy $10 in Knorr sides (10 for $10) and save $3 off frozen cooked or uncooked shrimp in the seafood department on your next shopping order! (Offer valid 2/25-3/5)
I chopped a large handful of spinach into smaller pieces and sliced a cup of cherry tomatoes in half. They’re so bright and colorful – definitely the kind of veges I like to eat!
For the recipe I chose – Knorr Creamy Shrimp Alfredo – I used the Alfredo Pasta Side dish and cooked according to package directions. Then I added the spinach and tomatoes while I sauteed the shrimp in a separate pan.
I like to use the frozen RAW shrimp that is peeled & deveined. It’s typically right NEXT to the precooked in the freezer section. Once I tried the raw – I never went back. The precooked are really great for shrimp cocktail though.
Once the pasta is cooked – you add the freshly sauteed shrimp and give it a quick toss. It looked and smelled delicious – I was definitely ready to dig in!
I really love these Knorr Pasta Sides – I’ve been using them for years. It’s so great to know that now I can use them for entrees too! I’m not sure why I never thought of it! 🙂 I have already downloaded the Free Recipe Book so I can find even more good stuff to make for dinner tomorrow!
