Get Your Sam’s Card Ready!

Those of you with a Sam’s card will greatly appreciate this recipe!!   My mom has been making this for years and when I found out she got the main ingredient from Sam’s, I was headed there the next day to get my membership!! {Other vendors may carry the same ingredient, but the only place I can find it is Sam’s!!!!}   This is a fast and E-A-S-Y dish…something you wanna serve when company’s over because it will please!  Unless you hate shrimp &/or pasta, there’s no reason you won’t LOVE this meal!!!


1 box of Shrimp Scampi {Sea Pak…from Sam’s Club}

2 cans tomato sauce {I use Hunt’s}

1 pkg. spaghetti, cooked

Cook spaghetti noodles according to package.  In a separate saucepan, saute the shrimp on medium heat until melted.  {This box packs A LOT of shrimp.  If I’m just cooking for me & Mr. Spouse, then I only use half the bag. }

Once the buttery stuff on the shrimp has melted, pull them out & remove the tails.

Return the shrimp to the saucepan and add two cans of tomato sauce.  Cook on medium heat.

You’ll notice that the scampi/sauce mix looks REALLY greasy right around the edges.  It is.  SO, spoon out the excess butter/grease.

Let the sauce simmer for about 15 minutes and then pour over pasta.

TO.DIE.FOR!!!!  I still ask for this whenever I go home even though I can make my own here :)  Like I said, other stores may carry the shrimp scampi, but I haven’t been able to find it anywhere else.  I’m sure there’s something comparable, so if you know of something, let me know!!!
