Recipe Review: Chili Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta

Jon and I have been so busy the last few weeks that I really have cooked much. I try to make one big casserole each week that feeds us. I have not had time cook and I really miss it. So, when my friend Gail (who is known for her incredible recipes) gave me this recipe it was the perfect excuse for me to get back in the kitchen!

I could not wait to try this. I was so excited, but I could not wait to go to the store for the correct ingredients.

The night I made this for dinner was not the most ideal, because it was a crazy day at work. I also had a meeting at church and Jon was late coming home from a flight. However, I refused to let that stop me. I was a woman on a mission! I am proud to say that I accomplished my mission and successfully made dinner.

For the complete/original recipe, click the link.

Here are the ingredients I used to make this dish. Some of these ingredients are different then those listed in the original recipe, but I was trying to use what I had in my pantry and freezer.

I did not have any shrimp, so I decided to make this recipe with chicken instead. It was very good!

I really wish that we would have had angel hair pasta, because that is my pasta of choice. However, I decided to use what I had sitting in my pantry...penne pasta.

I should have added another 1/2 cup of salsa or tomato sauce, because with this much pasta it was a little dry.

The serving size was a little more then a cup, but always be sure to measure out the serving size yourself so that you are accurately counting your points each day. Jon and I both liked this recipe. It was very flavorful. I will definitely be making this dish again, hopefully next time with the original ingredients!

Ooh, I have those same dishes!

I have to admit, I'm not a big pasta fan, by my husband loves it. I'd make it for him, and he would love it.

Losing Brownies - We are twins!! Glad that your husband will enjoy this dish.

Jen said...

I am glad to know it can be made with chicken as my boyfriend doesn't eat seafood.
Glad it turned out!
