  • Linguini w/shrimp. Linguini, garlic, butter, a touch of pesto and sun-dried tomato paste ... yummy!

  • You could steam it with some Old Bay and a little lemon juice. That's always easy and tastes great! I cook mine in a frying pan sometimes or you could put it in a big pot.

  • Sorry, didn't remember the rest of your question! You could put it with noodles and maybe add some veggies in, with some kind of sauce too.

  • Make Garlic Shrimp and Pasta.
    Simmer the shrimp in a pan with Oil, Butter, and Garlic. The melted Oil and Better should just barely cover the shrimp. Simmer for about 10 minutes stirring every so often to coat the shrimp.
    Then make your favorite type of Pasta. Whether Speghetti, Shells, Elbow, or Linguini. Drain shrimp and toss with cooked Pasta. Taking a serving spoon and adding a little excess sauce to the pasta to help coat.

    You can also make Cold Pasta Salad with Shrimp instead of Chicken.
    Cook Shrimp. Cook Spiral or Bow Tie Pasta (Any small pasta like that would do). Mix Pasta, Shrimp, Italian Dressing, Parmasean Cheese, Minced Garlic (Produce Section, pre-minced) together in a large bowl. All ingredients are to taste. It can be served cold, at room temp, or warm. Great for large gatherings.

  • Bertolli Vodka Pasta sauce over spaghetti.

  • Shrimp needs to be cleaned and the legs and vein that runs through it taken out to be eaten. If you want simple, shrimp scampi is really white wine, lemon and butter and it can be put over your choice of pasta or rice or light noodles.
