Wednesday's Recipe - Pick Your Own Combo Pasta

I'm a couple days late in posting this week's recipe, but sometimes life gets in the way. Want another quick and easy recipe with only a handful of ingredients? Pick your meat, pick your vegetables, pick your pasta. Ready in about thirty minutes, including prep!

Pick Your Own Combo Pasta

1 cup Italian salad dressing, divided
1 lb. peeled shrimp or boneless skinless breast
1 medium onion, chopped
16 oz. can quartered artichoke hearts, drained or 2 cups broccoli florets
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 lb. pasta (I usually use shells or rotini)
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Prepare pasta according to directions on box. While pasta cooks, preheat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1/2 cup salad dressing, onion, and shrimp or chicken. Saute until cooked through. Add vegetables. Cook broccoli until crisp-tender, artichokes and mushrooms until heated through.

Toss remaining salad dressing with cooked pasta. Add contents of skillet and mix gently. Serve. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I prefer shrimp and artichoke or chicken and broccoli, but feel free to substitute or interchange.

A light, easy-to-prepare meal for those hot summer days!
