Dinner Tonight: Leftovers - Shrimp w/ Pasta Roni – Parmesan Cheese
For Breakfast this morning I fried some Jennie - O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, had some
As always when I prepare this meal it's leftovers for the next meal. I really enjoy the Pasta Roni Meals, whether its with Shrimp or Chicken. In this case its Shrimp and far be it from me to ever waste Shrimp. So I put the leftovers on a microwavable plate, covered it, and reheated it. It's just as good the 2nd time around! I also reheated some Pillsbury French Bread that I had baked yesterday. For dessert later, I baked a box of Pillsbury Sugar Free Chocolate Brownies. Below is last night's Dinner description. Enjoy!
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 Shrimp and all Seafood. For the Shrimp; 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. And as the Shrimp was cooking I started to prepare the Pasta.
I’ve prepared this several times now, sometimes I make using Chicken but Shrimp is my favorite.
