Shrimp Pasta Béarnaise

No, I didn’t say steak.

 

When most people hear Béarnaise Sauce, they instantly think, steak. Yeah, well, I’m not a chef. And guess what, it compliments this pasta sauce, perfectly! Don’t believe me, try it. Fast, easy, and affordable. Great for big groups or picnics. It can be served warm or cold. Perfect with a big, juicy burger!

Like I said, I’m not a chef. This is just something I threw together, a long time ago. I’ve made it several times and everyone loves it! But that “no chef thing”, means I don’t really measure. So, just guess.

1 Box Ronzoni Garden Delight Pasta (12oz)

1 Bag of Cooked Shrimp 91-110 Count

2 Packages of Knorr Béarnaise Sauce

1 Package of Grape Tomatoes

Garlic Salt

 

Cut the tomatoes to preference. I prefer cutting them into thirds. I do this while waiting for the water to boil.

Follow the directions for the Ronzoni Pasta. Cook for about 8 minutes. Drain.

While the pasta is cooking, start your Béarnaise Sauce. I make both packages at once. Simply double the instructions. 

Combine pasta and sauce into a large bowl. Add garlic salt to taste. About 1/2 tablespoon. Mix well. Add tomatoes and shrimp. Mix. Serve.

Anything in this recipe can be substituted. I like these noodles because they’re healthy and flavorful. A lot of tri-colored noodles have zero flavor. I use the smaller, but not the smallest shrimp, because it compliments the size of the noodles and tomatoes. The Knorr Bernaise Sauce is simple to make. But if you prefer, you can make your own.

 

I’ve made this several times over the last few years. But each time, as much as everyone loved it, it was missing something. At least to me. Well, it was the tomatoes. Those tomatoes…must be something about their acidic nature that really brings this whole thing together? But what do I know? I’m a photographer.

 

Would love to know what you think, if you try it!
