Asian Pasta with Shrimp – It’s simple and delicious and is great for a weeknight meal


8 oz. linguine pasta
8 oz. sugar snap peas, 2 cups (I used broccoli)
1 1/4 lbs. extra large shrimp, peeled, deveined
1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
3/4 cup light Asian toasted sesame dressing (I used Kraft)
1/4 cup fresh cilantto

I buy a large bag of frozen uncooked, cleaned shrimp with tail on

Cook pasta according to package directions, adding snap peas during the last 2 minutes of cooking time.  Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water.

In large nonstick skillet, heat 2 Tbs oil (I used olive oil) over medium-high heat.  Add shrimp; cook, stirring, until opaque, 4 minutes.  Reduce heat to low.

Add pepper flakes, dressing, 1/4 tsp. salt and reserved pasta, snap peas and cooking water.  Cook, stirring, until heated through, 1 minute.  Remove from heat.  Stir in cilantro.
