Recipe for :

Solo Sweet Sour Shrimp and Pasta

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. Bill says that if you have any questions feel free to email him - click here or if you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This is one of a series of Solo meals that is designed for one, or if served with a salad, it could be a light lunch for two. However the recipe's concept can be expanded to feed a family".


4 ounces cooked baby shrimp - the tiny ones
1 1/2 cups dry pasta - I like rotini
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons catsup
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 finely diced fresh garlic
fresh shredded parmesan cheese

  • Cook pasta in two quarts of salted water until done (about 8 minutes).
  • Place shrimp in a colander and thaw under warm water.
  • Place catsup, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil in the bottom of a pasta serving bowl, mix well and adjust taste with salt and pepper if desired.
  • Just moments before the pasta is done, add the shrimp to the pasta and then drain in the colander.
  • Pour into the pasta bowl, toss to coat, and add the tomatoes.
  • Top with Parmesan cheese, and add additional oil is desired.
