Easy Shrimp & Pasta Parma Rosa

With the help of some Knorr Parma Rosa Sauce Mix, you can make a simple pasta dish. This was a nice dish for the family because it was filling, and it's easy to put in your own substitutes. I used Shrimp as my addition to the pasta, but some sliced chicken breast or even a steak sliced thin would be a great topper.

1 1.30 oz. packet of Knorr Parma Rosa sauce mix
1 1/4 cup of 2% milk
1 16 oz. box of Mostaccioli Rigati dried pasta (use whatever you have in the pantry)
12 steamed shrimp (31-40 large)
1/2 frozen box of diced broccoli

Cook pasta per box directions.

Using the directions on the Parma Rosa suace mix, make sauce mix at same time as pasta. This way, your pasta and sauce will be done around the same time.
At the same time, I used my steamer to cook my shrimp. I used frozen bagged shrimp.
I microwaved the box of broccoli until they were cooked. Aproximatley, 5 minutes.

Now for the part I hate....peel your shrimp after they are cooked.

Drain the pasta and add the sauce mix and shrimp so that it all coats evenly in the sauce.

I added only 1/2 of the box on top of the pasta. You don't have to add a vegetable at all if you don't want to, but we always try to incorporate a "green" into our dinner routine. A side bonus was it brightened up the dish and make it more appealing.
