I was fumbling around the kitchen today looking for a quick bite to eat. When my kids aren't here is when I get to experiment. This is an easy shrimp recipe. Most of the ingredients are pre-cooked which saves on clean up time.
- 8 -10 large cooked shrimp
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
- 1⁄4 cup chopped bell pepper (red and green)
- 3 slices cooked bacon, cut into small pieces
- 1⁄2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1⁄2 teaspoon of minced onion flakes
- 1 tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Italian spices
- 1⁄4 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese
- 4 ounces fettuccine
- In a small skillet add the olive oil, garlic, crushed red peppers and minced onion flakes.
- Heat on medium high heat for 5 minutes, stirring ocassionally.
- In a separate sauce pan cook the fettuccine noodles per package directions.
- Add the chopped red and green peppers to the skillet and saute for another couple minutes.
- Reduce heat to medium and add the shrimp and bacon.
- Cook the shrimp until most of the liquid is gone (about 10 minutes).
- When the noodles are done, drain them and place them on an oven safe plate.
- Spoon out the shrimp mixture onto the noodles and sprinkle the parmesan cheese and italian seasoning on top.
- Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over all and place under the broiler at 500 degrees until the mozzarella just begins to melt.
- Remove from the oven and enjoy.
