Creamy Garlicky Shrimp Over Fettuccini

This was a total surprise dish.  By a surprise dish what I mean is I didn't expect to love this.  I know that sounds weird but its true!  Here's the background:  I got my Kraft First Taste coupon in the mail for the new Philadelphia Cooking Creme so I went out and bought it (because I can't pass up free right?)  I chose the Savory Garlic Cooking Creme and brought it home, put it in the fridge and there it sat and sat...  Fast forward a little while and I need a quick meal, I had a pasta dish in mind for dinner that night and went to grab the ingredients and they were not here - ugh!  I opened the fridge to come up with another plan and this container was begging to be used.  So, I grabbed it.  When I say I didn't expect to like this dish much , what I'm really saying is we are kind of pasta snobs in this house (I admit it we are.)  We don't buy jarred sauce unless its going in lasagna and then maybe we'll use some.  I can make a great sauce real fast like my go to quick pasta sauce recipe. Or an unbelievable, let it cook all day amazing pasta sauce like this one So, I was skeptical - I was so wrong!  This was great and when Hubby walked in from work and sat down to dinner he kept asking what was in this amazing sauce (he is a bigger pasta snob than I am so he was doubly shocked.)  Enjoy!!

What you need:
1 lb shrimp, frozen cooked cleaned and thawed (I used medium)
1/2 -1 cup frozen peas, thawed (I went overboard on the peas - I lost my grip on the bag)
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
black pepper
1/4 cup milk
1 tub Philadelphia Savory Garlicky Cooking Creme

What you do:
Heat oil and cook onions about 3-4 minutes.  Ad the peas and cook while stirring 4-5 more minutes.  Add your shrimp, pepper and milk and cook and stir for about 3 minutes or until the shrimp are heated through.  Add the creme now and continue to cook and stir for another couple of minutes.  You can add pasta liquid to thin if you need to.
Serve over fettuccine.

  9. This is so random - but I love spelling 'garlicky' like that :) However, your food looks delicious. Never had garlicky fettuccini - I am going to have to try it!

  10. It looks delicious! I can relate to the whole no-sauce-from-a-can. In college, I lived with a roommate who is Italian, and she would teach me all kinds of recipes from scratch that she learned from her mother! They're SO much better than any store bought sauce.

    So glad you liked it :) Saving this recipe now. Thanks!!

I wanted to let you know that this recipe (picture and link went up twice) but I believe you wanted to link up a second pasta recipe for Shrimp Leek and Spinach pasta which sounds soooo good.
