I'm a Chef

Here is a recipe I made up. It was really good. I call it...

Shrimp Utopia

5 cups bowtie pasta
1 jar ragu alfredo sauce
2 tbs Olive Oil
1 clove garlic
30 pieces small shrimp
10 leaves spinach
1 romano tomatoe
1/4 tsp basil
1/4 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp lemon juice
5 or 6 croutons (optional)

Boil the pasta in water. In frying pan add Olive oil and finely chopped garlic. Saute until the garlic is golden brown. Add peeled shrimp, chopped spinach, chopped tomatoe, basil, oregano, and lemon juice. Saute on medium heat, stiring frequently, until it makes a thick sauce. Drain pasta and stir in alfredo sauce. My kids don't like vegetables so I dish them out the noodles and pasta. Then, I fill the adults bowls with alfredo pasta and stir half the shrimp sauce into each of those bowls. Add crushed croutons on top. Yummy!

Shrimp sauce makes 2 servings but I can feed my kids too with the pasta.
