1 (16 ounce) package
dry fusilli pasta
cooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
green bell pepper, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
This is a great recipe. I added a bit of garlic salt, half of a red onion, and cooked the shrimp in beer and Old Bay to add flavor. I topped it with sprinkled freshly grated parmesan. Yummy:)
It wasn't as great as I thought it would be. But I used frozen salad shrimp. I thought that maybe if I grill the shrimp next time, it will taste much better.
very good base recipe. added 1 stalk chopped celery and half of a large red onion, chopped as well. used light mayo.
This reciope is a good basic start. I added 2T. capers, 1/4c celery, 1/4c onion,1 cup broccoli (lightly steamed) a handful of red and green chopped pepper two dashes of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp dijon mustard and lemon juice, toss it all together and shred cheddar cheese on top and toss again...it was great!
Gosh didn't like this at all.. lacked so much flavor, and didn't like the "soft" texture it had. I agree it needed celery, and onion for "crunch". The Mayo did nothing for the taste... Again just a very poor receipe.. Sorry.. Best cooking to you.......
Very light salad, as a main dish or side dish.
May need a little moe mayonaise, depending on taste.
Family loved it! Easy to make.
Will prepare this dish again.
This was just ok, though the kids really seemed to enjoy it, hence the four stars. I thought it was a little dry and thought it might do better with a flavored mayo. Roasted pepper maybe??
