Shrimp & Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini

Presented by Prego®. All opinions are my own.

Tender shrimp is paired with broccoli and bathed in a luxuriously creamy Homestyle Alfredo Sauce from Prego Italian Sauces.

Life has been so hectic lately, I can't seem to keep all the balls up in the air. The past few months have been some of the most stressful for my family. Everyone is adapting to new changes, and the effects are being felt. I feel like there are not enough hours in a day and often find myself going to bed at the same time as the kids. I'm not sure how working Moms make it seem so easy. I give you guys many kudos, because working and being a Mom is HARD! Through all this, I've been struggling to make sure that we don't fall into bad eating habits. It would be so easy to order takeout rather than making a meal after spending 8 hrs on my feet. Thankfully there are products out there to make life easier; like Prego's Homestyle Alfredo Sauce.

Anyone who has been following my blog for any amount of time knows that though we try to eat healthily, I have no qualms about opening up a can or package to make life easier. Especially when the foods or sauces I use are made with real ingredients. That's what I love about Prego's Homestyle Alfredo Sauce. It is made with real cream, which makes me feel better about "cheating" on nights where I just don't have time (or the energy) to throw together a homemade Alfredo sauce. This Alfredo sauce from Prego is so thick and luxurious. That's what I LOVE about it. Well, that and the fact that it helps me get dinner on the table in a snap, so I can relax and connect with the kiddos over a delicious meal.  

Shrimp & Broccoli Alfredo Tortellini

 2 Tbs olive oil
 1 Tbs butter
 3 cloves of garlic, minced
 1 pkg 41-50 count raw peeled and deveined shrimp
 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets
 1 350g pkg rainbow tortellini
 3 Tbs sea salt
 1 14.5 oz jar Prego Homestyle Alfredo Sauce

 Directions: Bring a large pot of water mixed with sea salt, to a boil. Once boiling, add in the tortellini and cook to package directions; adding the broccoli during the last 3 minutes of cooking time.

 In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter, over medium heat. Once the butter starts to sizzle, add the garlic and shrimp. Cook until shrimp become pink and opaque; about 5-7 minutes.

 Once shrimp is cooked, add in the jar of Prego Homestyle Alfredo Sauce; cook to heat the sauce. Drain the pasta and broccoli and add them to the Alfredo mixture. Toss to coat and serve.
