Hello Friends and Happy 1st Fri-Yay 2014!
Today’s Foodie Feature is a 4 ingredient 40 minute meal ~ Shrimp Alfredo
- Ragu Cheesy Sauce – 1 Jar
- Thin Pasta – 1/2 box
- Broccoli – 2 crowns
- Shrimp – small raw, deveined, tail off
Place frozen shrimp in a steamer pot or double boiler (fill bottom pan with water) – cover and steam on low heat until shrimp turns pink.
Rinse and cut stems from fresh broccoli. Steam or microwave if you prefer tender broccoli crowns.
Boil water and cook pasta according to box directions, or for approximately 7 minutes.
Drain but do not rinse pasta and return to pan.
Add broccoli crowns
Pour in entire jar of Ragu Cheesy Sauce, adding a little water to the empty jar, shake and pour into pan. Stir to mix ingredients thoroughly and cook on low for an additional 7-10 minutes to heat sauce and soften broccoli crowns.
Seasoned only with a little black pepper this made for an easy breezy meal and was a big hit with my men.

In our house a store bought Rotisserie Chicken is always a two day meal. The leftover chicken is usually cut up, covered with a cream soup and mushrooms then served over rice. Today a co-worker gave me a recipe that added a twist and it was an easy, breezy dinner that the family enjoyed.
Rotisserie Chicken ~ Package of Frozen Broccoli ~ Can of Cream of Mushroom/Chicken soup ~ 3 tablespoons of mayo ~ 3 tablespoons of lemon or lime juice ~ shredded cheese
I didn’t have lemon juice so I used lime
Added 3 tablespoons of mayo to a can of cream of chicken soup
Added 3 tablespoons of lime juice
Steamed the broccoli according to package then layered in casserole dish
Cut up leftover chicken over top of broccoli
Poured mayo mixture over chicken and broccoli
I grated Pepper Jack cheese because I didn’t have a bag of shredded cheddar cheese
Placed in a pre-heated oven set on 350~ and cooked for 30 mins. Last 5 mins turned oven to broil to give it a crispy top
