Pasta Shrimp Parmesan
Why I Love This Recipe
Vegaphobes won’t know that this mac and cheese harbors a can of carrots. Shhh. The casserole has three recipe variations for adventurous eaters – Pasta Florentine adds some garlic, spinach and Parmesan cheese; there’s a hint of spicy brown mustard in the Ham and Cheese variation; and Shrimp Parmesan is enhanced with a can of baby shrimp and the scent of extra-virgin olive oil.
(Goes with Tasty Mixed-Up Mac and Cheese recipe)
Ingredients You'll Need
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/3 cup canned pasta sauce
2 ounces canned, tiny shrimp, drained
3 cups hot mac and cheese (Tasty Mixed-Up Mac and Cheese recipe)
2 tablespoons finely shredded, imported Parmesan cheese
Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium-heat. Add the garlic and cook until aromatic, about 10 seconds. Add the pasta sauce and shrimp, and heat through, 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir into 2 portions, or approximately 3 cups, of hot mac and cheese along with the Parmesan cheese and serve.
