Ingredients

    3 tbsp real butter
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    1 cup sugar snap peas
    1 cup green peppers
    1 cup green beans
    1 cup onions
    1 cup mushrooms
    2 cups california blend (carrots/broccoli/cauliflower)
    1 20oz can pineapple tidbits with juice
    4 cups shrimp
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    2 tbsp corn starch
    4 tbsp water
    3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    1/2 tsp ginger
    4 cups pasta


Directions

Cook pasta as directed, drain, set aside...
Melt 3 tbsp real butter in non stick skillet or wok, add 1 tbsp minced garlic, and brown on very low heat, so butter won't scorch.
Add 1 cup sliced onion, 1 cup sliced green peppers, 1 cup snap green beans (raw not canned), 1 cup sugar snap peas, and 2 cups california blend veggies... saute for 10 min on low heat, turning over and over.
Add 4 cups shrimp and 1 cup mushrooms, mix well, keep on very low heat...
Add 1/4 cup soy sauce to a bowl, whisk in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 3 tbsp cider vinegar, 1/2 tsp ginger.
When veggies are almost done, add mixture to pan, and mix well, coating all thoroughly.
Add 1 20oz can pineapple tidbits and the juice to pan, mix in well.
Turn heat on high, and bring to boil.
Add 4 cups cooked pasta.
Stir 2 tbsp corn starch into 4 tbsp water, mix well.
As soon as pan is boiling, add corn starch mix to pan, and stir well while juices thicken.
Remove from heat as soon as juices are thickened, (do not leave on high heat for too long, or the veggies will overcook and be too soft).
Serve
Enjoy!!
Makes 12 - 1 cup servings

NOTE: I enjoy a variety of vegetables in my stir fry's, although you may just stick with the regular sweet & sour veggies as well, either way, this is a recipe that is sure to satisfy the whole family!!
