Thank you fellow Glens Falls Gourmet Gal Mary Longley! This pasta recipe looks great & we love our shrimp pasta recipes!
Keeping some key foods on hand can make whipping up a great meal like this quick and easy.
Look for items that are on sale when you grocery shop. Keep foods like canned, diced tomatoes, pasta, frozen shrimp, poultry or meats that thaw quickly on hand. A dash of olive oil, garlic, herbs & seasonings and you can whip up a great meal.
Stock your pantry always, but especially during the holiday season. The holiday is not just the one day. Don’t add to the stress by having to dash to the store when you have a surprise guest come for dinner. Don’t overstock, but definitely keep some non-perishable & frozen items on hand. You don’t have to spend a ton to be prepared.
I like to have milk, eggs, frozen veggies, bacon, cheeses, pasta, fresh lemon, onion, olive oil, pasta, herbs, Bisquick and some proteins on hand. You can make everything from our easy quiche recipe to some of our great pasta dishes without having to worry about running out to the store.
