Easy Suppers...Part 2

I recently did a post on quick meals for busy moms. Here is another easy favorite we like...especially when we go grocery shopping on a week night after we both get home from work and are way too tired to think about cooking but don't feel like fast food. Whew. That sentence kinda makes me tired. it is. Crazy easy recipe # 2....

Saucey Shrimp Pasta (name may need work)

1 bag stuffed pasta (frozen tortellini or ravioli work well and are cheap)
1 lb frozen raw shrimp
1 jar favorite pasta sauce

Thaw shrimp and cook in pan with olive oil. Season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper. I love the flavor that lemon juice adds to makes it taste more like fresh shrimp. Cook pasta according to package. Once pasta is done, drain. Add in pasta sauce, shrimp, and any other seasonings you want. (Basil is our favorite add-in) Let it simmer until sauce is heated. Top with cheese or herbs. Done!
