Printable Recipe:  Easy Shrimp Alfredo with Tomatoes and Spinach

I do not normally used any packaged convenience food in my recipes. I like the taste of all whole food and I don’t like chemicals. But there are days (like today when I was Christmas shopping) when I still want a tasty meal but don’t have a lot of time.  On nights like this, I make use of Knorr side dish pasta mixes.

Yes, there are some chemicals in the mixes, but I can use skim milk to make them and they still thicken up and taste like they are full of cream and butter, so it’s a bit of a trade off.
