Shrimp & Mushroom Scampi

Lately, I’ve been trying some new recipes, food that we enjoy when we eat out, but some that I’ve never made before. Beef Pot Pie was one I recently made. I’ve been cooking since I was 9 years old (with my mom’s supervision) and I can’t believe I never made pot pie before. It’s become one of our favorites and last week I made a turkey pot pie! Using prepackaged pie crust makes it even easier. I’ll need to write a blog on this recipe sometime.

Today, I decided to try making Shrimp Scampi. Shrimp Scampi or Shrimp Alfredo is what my hubby orders every time we go to Red Lobster. I have made the Shrimp Alfredo, using the Alfredo sauce in the jar, but I have never made the shrimp scampi…so today was the day. Besides, when I was shopping at Aldi’s I came across this Shrimp Scampi Sauce by Campbell’s. It doesn’t hurt to have a little help in the kitchen. 🙂 I have to say the sauce is really good and I would definitely buy it again.

Ingredients you will need are:
2 # Shrimp
2 tsp minced garlic
Butter – 1/2 stick or 4 Tablespoons
1 # of mushrooms
1 bag of Campbell’s Skillet Sauce – Shrimp Scampi

First, you want to get a pan of water going to cook the spaghetti or whatever pasta you want to use. Angel hair, fettuccini or linguini are other options.

I purchased a 2 lb. bag of raw, frozen shrimp that was cleaned and deveined. I removed the tails and patted the shrimp dry with a paper towel to remove any moisture.

I used my cast iron skillet today and put in 1/2 stick of butter and melted it. I then added 2 tsp of minced garlic (I use the garlic that’s already minced in the jar) but you can use fresh. Sauté the garlic for a couple minutes. Then, add in a package of sliced mushrooms. I use the white button mushrooms, but baby portobellos would also be good. Sauté the mushroom for 5-6 minutes or until tender. Remove mushrooms from skillet and set aside.

I just love cooking with cast iron!

Add shrimp to the cast iron skillet and cook until they turn pink…

then add the mushrooms back into the skillet just to heat them up again. Put the cooked and drained spaghetti back into the large pot you cooked the spaghetti in and add the shrimp scampi sauce on top, mixing thoroughly. Then put the spaghetti with the sauce mixture back into the cast iron skillet and stir to combine and to heat everything up again.

My hubby loved it and said it’s a “keeper.”
