Easy Italian Shrimp Tortellini Bake
This recipe uses a great blend of both commercial and home made ingredients (or at least fresh) to create this Easy Italian Shrimp Tortellini Bake. This recipe blends tomatoes, cheese, whole wheat pasta and shrimp for a tasty and nutritious meal.
Shrimp is a great food to eat. It has loads of protein and almost no fat or calories. It works well with many different kinds of foods from pastas to soups and also tastes great with other seafood, fish or even chicken. And shrimp on steak is fabulous; there can be little doubt. Shrimp has also become a very affordable sea food, and one that you can eat often in lots of different dishes. It is tasty whether you serve it cold and by itself with a tangy sauce, or include it in some thing like a jambalaya where it is one of several meats, chickens and fish in a dish. It is a great food to teach your kids to enjoy. Here it is the star of the show, so be sure to get a good quality shrimp to high light in this dinner dish.
You can use any kind of pasta for this dish, although whole wheat is the one the recipe suggests. This suggestion is a good one. Foods made with white flour, like plain pasta, can cause the same sugar rush that plain sugar causes. This is because white flour is also a simple carbohydrate. Shifting to whole wheat pasta means a shift to complex carbohydrates that do not break down as quickly. Thus, the sugar rush is avoided in that food. If you are leery about trying whole wheat pasta, and unsure how your family will take it, try putting in one half whole wheat and one half of your usual fare. Get them slowly accustomed by adding a bit more of the whole wheat pasta over time. Enjoy this affordable and tasty dish soon.
