This Sugarbaby Saturday has been brought to you by PB&J. Keeping kids full and inspiring funny faces for a long damn time.
And on to the recipe.
Supergrandma used to make this simple pasta salad all the time when I was a kid.
I love it. My kids love it.
In fact I haven't met anyone who didn't like it, except for those few strange folks who don't like seafood. Weirdos.
Anyways, it is so easy to make, that whenever our High School speech class had to do a demonstration speech, I demonstrated how to make this.
It was either that or French kissing and I'm not sure Mr. Wilms would have approved. Although I bet I would have had lots of volunteers.
Point of that little story was that even the High School kids loved it.
two cans of tiny shrimp
1 bag of alphabet pasta (you can find this in the mexican food section and p.s. to all you locals, we have this at the store in the dollar section)
And a little note about this pot.
I love this pot.
My GG got this for me a few years ago and I use it at the very least twice a week.
The built in strainer is so handy and it goes right in the dishwasher.
I wish I could tell you what brand it was, but I don't know.
You will need about 1/2 cup.
Red or white it doesn't matter.
You'll need 1/4 cup depending on how your family feels about onions.
Put the shrimp in a large serving bowl.
Once the water is boiling. Add the pasta and cook for about 10 minutes or until done.
You want the pasta a bit firm for this recipe.
Drain off the water and add the pasta to the bowl of shrimp, celery, and onion.
Add 1/2 cup mayo. I used light mayo cause ya know....always on a diet.
But you can use whatever you want.
I seasoned mine with Cavendars. My mom always used Nature's. I think.
Use whatever you have on hand and like for yourself.
Gently mix it all up and chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
