I can not believe that we are less than a week away from Christmas. That is just crazy to me. I think I have all of my presents wrapped, my stocking stuffers are ready to go, but I still feel so behind. I have to finish planning the menu and grocery shop for sure. Plus there are a few last minute cookies that I need to make. Today is the day I have to make the teacher gifts, so they are ready to go to school tomorrow. The longer I sit here, the longer my list gets. Hopefully I am not alone in this.
Do you remember when I made Chicken Marsala with Campbell’s Skillet Sauces a few months ago? Well today I have another one for you. Apparently Campbell’s loved my first post, because they asked me to make another one that was fit for the holidays. This time I picked the Scampi variety. We are having a seafood feast this year for our Christmas dinner, and I just think of shrimp as a “special” food. So why not make shrimp scampi to serve at your New Year’s Eve dinner? I have never actually made shrimp scampi at home before. I have only ever had it at restaurants.
I know a lot of people go all out for New Years Eve dinners; upscale food, drinks, new recipes etc. I say, why not make something that is super quick and easy, but tastes and looks like an upscale dish. Campbell’s Scampi skillet sauce is perfect. Our entire dinner was ready in less than 20 minutes. That included garlic bread, pasta, the shrimp and a salad. Shrimp is quick cooking by nature, and the sauce has all the ingredients ready, you just have to open the packet and heat. My 8 year old loves shrimp, and he thought this was the amazing. I will definitely be stocking this variety in my pantry.
- 1 pound large shrimp , peeled and deveined
- 1 Tbls canola oil
- 1 package Scampi Campbells Skillet Sauce
- 8 oz spaghetti
Cook pasta according to the package directions.
In a large skillet heat canola oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp, and cook for 2 minutes or until just starting to turn pink.
Add skillet sauce, and cook until shrimp are cooked through. About 5 minutes.
Serve over pasta. Garnish with lemon if desired.
