  • Shrimp & Pasta w/Roasted Pepper Cream Sauce by sunny58

    They demonstrated this recipe at the Taste of Home Cooking School that I went to last week. I haven't tried it yet since I'm not a seafood fan, but it did smell wonderful while they were preparing it. I'm thinking about trying this without the shrimp or with chicken instead.

    Shrimp with Roasted Pepper Cream Sauce

    from Dunbars

    1 package, 7 oz, dry pasta of your choice
    1 jar, 12 oz, Dunbars Roasted Peppers
    1 package, 8 oz, cream cheese, softened
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    3 garlic cloves
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    2 pounds large shrimp, cooked, peeled and deveined
    1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or 1 tablespoon dried basil

    Prepare pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and oil. Meanwhile, drain roasted peppers. Place peppers, cream cheese, broth, garlic and cayenne pepper in a blender or food processor. Cover and process until smooth.

    Pour the mixture into a large skillet. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring often until thoroughly heated. Add the cooked shrimp and heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally until heated through. Serve over cooked pasta. Garnish with basil.

    Yield: 6 servings.
