“This delicious creamy pasta and shrimp dish is impressive enough to serve to company, and goes together quickly and easily for a busy weeknight meal. I sometimes add a tossed green salad and a crusty French bread, to round out the meal. Enjoy! Feel free to adjust seasoning to your taste. Adapted from Oldbay.com.”

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to directions on package. During the last minute of cooking add the peas. Drain and reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the shrimp and sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of Old Bay. Cook for 3 minutes or until they start to turn pink. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  3. Stir in the half-and-half, reserved cooking liquid, Parmesan cheese and the rest of the Old Bay. Simmer for 5 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and add the pasta, peas and green onion. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving (this gives the sauce a few more minutes to thicken).
  4. Serve with extra grated Parmesan cheese.
