3 Tbsp dry white wine (or use chicken broth)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning

Main Dish Instructions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

  4. Stir in wine and pepper.

  7. Serve shrimp over pasta.

Side Dish Ingredients

1 romaine lettuce heart, chopped
1 Roma tomato, chopped
2 Tbsp sour cream
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp salt

Side Dish Instructions

  1. Combine romaine and tomato in a serving bowl.
  2. Whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, vinegar, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  3. Pour dressing over salad, tossing to coat.

Overall, this meal was decently good.  The shrimp had a lot of flavor, the one thing I didn't like is that the pasta didn't have a sauce.  I like my pasta to have some sort of sauce, because just plain pasta is blah.  The salad was good, the dressing was good and creamy.
