There are two distinct ingredients that always catch my attention. Pasta! Seafood! Any kind of seafood. If I can put those two together I know it will be a great dish and everyone in the family will enjoy it. Looking thru an old Paula Deen magazine I found the perfect mix.

    Cheesey Shrimp Speghetti


    1 1/2 cup butter
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 Tbl dried parsley flakes
    1 Tbl Worcestershire Sauce
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp ground black pepper
    1/2 tsp dried basil
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    3 lbs medium fresh shrimp
    1 (12 oz) box thin spaghetti, cooked, drained
    1 (8 oz) package processed cheese, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

Preheat oven to 350°
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat
Add onions and cook for 5 minutes or until tender.
Stir in parsley, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper basil, thyme, and garlic powder.
Pour mixture into a 13″x9″ baking dish.
Add shrimp and toss gently to coat.
Bake for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from oven, stir in spaghetti and cheese. Return to oven and bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Stir all to combine.

DELICIOUS!!! Cheesy, rich, and wonderful!!. Now, I have a confession to make. I could have eaten this greedily without the cheese. Just toss the shrimp/butter/seasoning mix with the pasta and you have a completely different dish. Neither of them is low cal. But both of them equally GREAT!!

When I made it I did the whole dish in an oven proof skillet. That worked out very well and only one large dish to wash!!
