Shrimp w/ Noodles and Mushrooms

Dinner Tonight: Shrimp w/ Noodles and Mushrooms

I just had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. After my Tea and my morning workout I
headed to McDonald's to pick up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Another Hazy, Hot, and Humid day out there but with some Thunderstorms moving in. We really need the rain though. After I got back I went outside and trimmed the vines along the driveway. Then I had to repair a hole a racoon had made in the corner of our shed. The raccoon had been making the shed his home, that ended! Back inside straightened up the pantry and a few other little chores around the house. Dad has been doing real good since he returned from the hospital. He starts at home therapy Friday. For Dinner tonight its Shrimp w/ Noodles and Mushrooms.

I came across a recipe from a site I follow, Food Mingle. The recipe was Egg Noodles and
 Mushrooms and it gave the idea for my Dinner tonight, thank you Food Mingle! So tonight I'm preparing Shrimp w/ Noodles with Mushrooms. To make the dish I'll need; 1 - 1 lb. bag of Kroger Jumbo Shrimp, Old Bay Seasoning, 1/2 bag of Ronzini Smart Taste Extra Wide Noodle Style Pasta, sliced Baby Portabella Mushrooms, Parsley, and Sea Salt.

For the Shrimp part of the dish I used Kroger Brand Jumbo Shrimp. I had them in the freezer so I let
them thaw overnight in the fridge. I love the Shrimp and Seafood. I started by rinsing the Shrimp off in cold water and letting it dry in a colander. Using a medium size skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, that I heated on medium heat I cooked the Shrimp. I seasoned them with Old Bay Seasoning. Cooked them 2 minutes per side, turning the Shrimp once. So delicious and so easy to prepare! Removed them from the pan and placed them on a plate and set it aside.

As the Shrimp was cooking in a small skillet I sauteed the sliced Mushrooms. Using Baby Bella
Mushrooms, I sliced the Mushrooms. I seasoned them with Dried Thyme, Ground Smoked Cumin, Dried Parsley, and Sea Salt. Pan fried them in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a pat of Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Removed from the heat and set aside.

Finally to prepare the Noodles I brought 2 qts. water to a rapid boil. To add flavor and reduce
stickiness, add salt. Add the pasta and stir; return to rapid boil. Cook uncovered for 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain well and empty the Noodles into a large bowl. Toss in the sauteed Mushrooms. Add the Shrimp, add the parsley, and season with a little salt, to taste. I love the combo of Shrimp and Pasta and throw in the Mushrooms, it's a winner! For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.
