Spicy Shrimp and Noodles

"I absolutely LOVE this recipe!! When I first got married, the best investment I made was sending away for 6 teeny little coil-bound Campbell's Soup cookbooks. Nowadays, I don't use them much anymore, but this is one recipe that's still a favourite. You won't believe how tasty and quick this is!!"

  • Reduce heat to low and cook 5 minutes, or until shrimp are pink and opaque and noodles are tender. Stir occasionally to separate noodles.

  1. Very good. Very easy. Added a third package of noodles, using 3/4 of ONE seasoning packet.<br/>Husband gave it the thumbs up.
  2. I made this for dinner tonight. The only change I made was to add some grated carrot. I think next time (and there will be a next time) I'll either use less shrimp or another pack of noodles. We thought the spice was just right, it was a little spicy for my son, he's 4, but it was nothing he couldn't handle with a glass of milk. :) <br/>Thanks for posting!
  3. Made this for lunch the other day and it was such an easy and quick dish. The flavor was wonderful and the only thing I did was use the fresh garlic and cut the recipe in half being it was just DH and myself. Thank you.
  4. This was a great quick and tasty dish. My husband hates oriental noodles, but he really liked this. I will add this to my regular recipe rotation. Thanks!


<p>I live in beautiful western Manitoba, Canada. I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom with 2 daughters, Peanut (who turned 7 at the end of January) and Fidget (who will turn 5 in the middle of June) and a husband whom I call The Bushman, who's motto, lucky for me, is I'll try anything once! I'm a Mennonite by heritage as well as faith. I'm a born again Christian and we belong to a small Evangelical Mennonite country church where The Bushman and I are fairly involved. The church is made up largely of family groups -- most are related somehow. That's actually a Mennonite pastime, finding out how everyone's related to each other. If we're not directly related, we'll find a connection somehow -- your third cousin's wife's brother is for SURE my mother's father's sister-in-law's nephew!! See, isn't it amazing how small this world really is?! For fun, I enjoy photography -- my favourite subjects are sunsets, cloud formations, my girls, and nature close-ups -- reading, (John Grisham, Frederick Forsythe, Robert Ludlum, and Clive Cussler are my favourite authors), playing piano, and going for nice long walks, either first thing in the morning or towards sunset. I've even learned to enjoy it in the dead of winter, when I have no choice but to walk in semi-darkness. For those of you who've never experienced a Manitoba winter (lucky you!), 'the dead of winter' includes pretty much all of December, January, and February!! And up here, our shortest days of the year have only 7 hours of daylight, so if it's cloudy, well, it feels like no daylight at all! It's my favourite time to plan my day, pray, and daydream about what might happen if I'd ever actually buy a lottery ticket and win!! I love cooking -- baking not so much (mostly because it's not essential to survival and if there's baking in the house, that's all we eat!!) -- and reading recipe books is a favourite pastime of mine. I love the Company's Coming series of cookbooks, but my favourite is Taste of Home magazine. Since buying a premium membership here though, I've decided to let my subscription run out. I'll miss it, but I've decided there's really no need for it, since all the best recipes in the world eventually end up here!!</p>
