Shrimp with Sun Dried Tomatoes & Whole Wheat Pasta

Submitted by: JULIEN*

Introduction

Faster than take-out, tastes *amazing*. Everything is a no-chop pantry/freezer staple (for me at least) so this is a meal you can fall back on. You can bulk it out with veggies if you want, but I like to have a salad before hand and keep the dish simple. Faster than take-out, tastes *amazing*.

Ingredients

    Trader Joe's Organic Whole Wheat Rotelle Pasta, 1/2 cup
    Trader Joe's Frozen cooked Shrimp, 12 shrimp
    Canned tomatoes - no salt added - diced, 1/2 cup
    Trader Joe's Sundried Tomatoes, 1/2 oz
    Spoonful of pesto (I make my own and freeze it in mini ice cube trays, but store bought will work fine.)

Directions

Put the water on to boil the pasta. In a separate, small skillet, measure out the sun dried tomatoes and warm on medium heat. Add in the 1/2 c died tomatoes. Pull the frozen, cooked shrimp out of the freezer, rinse and add to skillet. Add a spoonful of pesto to the sauce and warm everything throughly. When the water boils, add the pasta and a small dash of salt. The package says to cook for 9-11 min, but I think the texture is best if you only cook for 7 mins. Use a slotted spoon to remove cooked pasta from water, toss immediately into sauce (it's ok if a little cooking water from the pasta gets in the sauce, the starch in the water will help thicken the sauce). Stir well and serve.
