I created this tonight after I realized I'd defrosted a package of shrimp and forgot about it. After adding a bunch of other random things I had on-hand, I ended up with quite a tasty (if fattening) dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Start a large pot of lightly salted water boiling.
  2. In another saucepan, combine cream cheese, parmesan, butter, garlic and 1/2 cup milk over medium heat until well blended, stirring occasionally.
  3. Microwave vegetables until heated through, about 5 minutes; drain.
  4. Add shrimp and vegetables to cream cheese mixture; stir well to combine.
  5. Continue cooking over medium-low heat until shrimp is heated through, about 10 minutes. (If sauce is too thick, add more milk a tablespoon at a time until desired consistency.).
  6. Add pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes; drain.
  7. Combine pasta with sauce and toss lightly to combine.
  8. Reserve a handful of pine nuts; add rest to pot and stir to combine.
  9. Sprinkle remaining pine nuts on individual servings after putting on plates.
