PASTA ALFREDO WITH SHRIMP AND HAM

PASTA ALFREDO WITH SHRIMP AND HAM
DINNER AT HOME

Once again I had to come up with dinner with only the things we had in the refrigerator.  I had some leftover Angel Hair Pasta and a quarter bottle of Alfredo Sauce plus a few slices of ham and some frozen shrimp.  I thawed the shrimp and put on my thinking hat.  Ok..I will chop up some shallots that were getting old along with some garlic to start.  Sauteed them up in some butter and olive oil and then added the shrimp.  Cooked the shrimp until about half cooked (don't overcook the shrimp) and deglazed with some white wine.  Removed the shrimp and set aside.  I then poured my Alfredo Sauce in the pan and added the ham that I had cut into small strips.  Heated and then added the shrimp back into the pan.  Placed the pasta on a plate and then covered with a bit of sauce and the shrimp.  Added a little Parmesan Cheese.  This dish was DELICIOUS.  A big home run and hit with entire family.  So fast and easy too using leftovers.
