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!!
