Ingredients

  • 1 pound whole wheat pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Earth Balance
  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled, deveined, rinsed & dried
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Sal & Judy’s Creole Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 25-ounce jar Sal & Judy's Heart Smart Sauce

Instructions

  1. Cook the pasta according to half of the package instructions. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil and Earth Balance to medium heat. Sear the shrimp quickly, add the garlic and season with the red pepper flakes, Sal & Judy seasoning, and black pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, take two large sheets of aluminum foil and make two boats in the bottom of a large baking dish (these will each hold half of the pasta, shrimp, and sauce).
  4. Add the drained pasta to the foil boats. Top with the sauce and then add the shrimp mixture.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until everything is completely warmed and cooked through. Serve right out of the foil boats.
