Your pasta is probably gone by now, but here's one I've had on my fridge to make (& because I love the pic ). Bottled dressing is another quick way to go. A site I like is ilovepasta. Take a peek & see what you think.

Caesar Shrimp and Pasta Serves 4

8 oz. Ziti, Mostaccioli or other medium pasta shape, uncooked
3 cups broccoli florets
1/3 cup plus 2 tbsp. bottled light Caesar salad dressing
12 oz. uncooked peeled and deveined shrimp, thawed if frozen
1/4 tsp. crushed red hot pepper flakes
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese



Prepare pasta according to package directions; three minutes before pasta is done, add broccoli florets. While pasta is cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of the dressing in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and pepper flakes; stir-fry 3-4 minutes or until shrimp is opaque. Drain pasta and broccoli; transfer to a serving bowl. Add remaining 1/3 cup dressing and shrimp mixture; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.

When I realized I was out of Caesar dressing, I had to pour Ranch over it instead. It was, uh, interesting? I know I'll like it when I have the right ingredients. Some days I'm lucky if I don't put my pantyhose on over my head. Glad you liked it Alix.
