If you’re a regular reader of Midlife Rambler, it should be no surprise to you that I’m a huge fan of quick and easy, particularly quick and easy dinners. I work from home and I still find myself scrambling at dinnertime too often, trying to come up with something that I can whip up in a hurry.

We’re trying to eat healthier and so we’re trying to cut down on eating out. I’ve been working on coming up with a rotation of easy meals that I can turn to when I need to get dinner on the table fast and this dinner, which features staples from Trader Joe’s that I can keep on hand until I need them, is perfect for me.

Trader Joe’s Argentinian Red Shrimp with Trader Joe’s Limone Alfredo Sauce combines two of my favorite Trader Joe’s items. Their Argentinian Shrimp is rich and meaty and, I swear, tastes more like lobster than shrimp. And you can’t beat the price: $9.99 for a package. Plus, they’re already peeled and deveined so you just have to thaw (which takes less than an hour because each shrimp is individually frozen) and you’re ready to go.

The new Limone Alfredo sauce is already a fan favorite and for good reason; it’s a lighter, brighter tasting version of classic Alfredo sauce. I can’t wait to try it on chicken with noodles.

I like to serve this over mixed greens or arugula just to keep things healthy, but this recipe would be delicious, decadent, yumminess over some fettuccine noodles. Feel free to lick your plate.
