Fun Foodies Friday

Creamy Seafood Pasta

This is surely a treat for all those pasta lovers out there. I am a FAN of pasta and not because I love food. There are so much variety when it comes to this kind of dish. Around this time of year we all are starting to eat our favorite comfort foods. Pasta is definitely on the top of the list. Super fast to make and fun to eat.  It serves eight people in only 30 minutes.

Let's begin with Ingredients....

16      oz uncooked linguine

can (18.5 oz) Progresso® Traditional New England clam chowder
cup milk
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz)
cloves garlic, minced
tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2
lb uncooked peeled deveined large shrimp, tails peeled
package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms (3 cups)
medium green onions, chopped (1/4 cup)
to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
cup chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste, if desired
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz), if desired


In 5- to 6-quart Dutch oven, cook linguine as directed on package. Drain well; return to Dutch oven and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in blender, place clam chowder, milk, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and the garlic; blend on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Set aside.                               

 In 12-inch nonstick skillet or wok, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add shrimp, mushrooms and onions; cook about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until shrimp turn pink.

Stir in pepper flakes and soup mixture; cook until thoroughly heated. Stir in parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Pour over cooked linguine in Dutch oven; toss gently to coat. Top individual servings with Parmesan cheese.

All done! Begin to serve  :-)
