I'm sure that you've noticed the price increases in your local grocery store. With the way our economy is today who can afford to purchase a variety of different ingredients to prepare a meal that will blow your guests away. I have the answer. . . .inexpensive, delicious and 5 minutes to prepare. The recipe is for Shrimp over linguine with Clam Sauce, oh so scrumptious.
Here's what you need:
2 cans of your favorite Clam Sauce (Progresso makes a good one)
3 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 lb of raw Shrimp (deveined & peeled) approx. 30
salt & pepper
Old Bay Seasonings
1 stick of butter
1 lb linguine
Before you start your Sauce you will want to get your pasta water boiling. Once the water comes to a rapid boil add your pasta and cook until al dente.
Sautee your garlic in Olive Oil. Add both cans of Clam Sauce, parsley, salt, pepper and Old Bay to taste. Bring to a low boil. Lower your heat to a simmer and add your shrimp (cook until pink) and stick of butter. Once your shrimp turn pink you are finished with the sauce. Take your pasta and toss in with the sauce.
This recipe is 4 Servings. If you're expecting more guests just simply add more Clam Sauce and Shrimp. If you can find Cherrystone Clams on sale that would make your dish even more attractive. Simply rinse your clams, add to a small amount of water and steam until they open. Be sure to serve warm garlic bread and a nice salad. For less than $25 you can make a meal that would impress anyone. . . even your Mother-in-Law.
