Spinach Spaghetti with Shrimps

Here is a recipe that I would like to share.. I did not have some of the ingredients, I changed to my version. They turned out to be very good! Yum-yum!!
Hope y'all have a good Halloween weekend and be safe.. :))

You can get the original recipe here.
Below is my version....

1/2 pound dry spaghetti
6 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach
3/4 pound shrimps (medium to large)
4 cloves garlic, sliced, divided
1 small can sliced mushroom, drained
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of celery soup
1 cup chicken broth
salt and black pepper to taste

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until 8 to 10 minutes, drain and reserve.
Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat and add spinach. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Saute spinach until wilted and no longer watery, about 8-10 minutes. Remove spinach from skillet and toss with pasta; transfer and keep warm.

In the same skillet, heat 2 more tablespoon of olive oil and add 2 cloves of sliced garlic and shrimps. Season with salt and black pepper, stirring frequently for 3-5 minutes or longer for larger shrimps, or until they appear opaque. Remove and keep warm.  

Using the same skillet again, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the remaining sliced garlic and saute until golden. Add mushroom, soup and chicken broth to the skillet. Stir occasionally until sauce is a smooth consistency. While the sauce is simmering, place the mixed spaghetti and spinach on to plated or bowls. Top with sauce and shrimps. Serve hot with home-made garlic bread.

Delicious Stuffed Potato Pancakes

I was browsing for some recipes online and I found a recipe that sounds and looks delicious. Delicious stuffed potato pancakes. Potato; checked! Ground beef; checked! So I decided to make these for dinner. Well, I think this dish can be eaten any time.. be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or maybe supper..

I do agree with the contributor, this is just a basic recipe. One can add spices, herbs and cheese or use sausage instead of beef and top with sour cream.. Yum-yum!!!  You will enjoy it more if you make it your way... :)

8 potatoes, peeled and shredded
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
salt and black pepper to taste

1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 onion, grated
1 pinch garlic salt
1 egg
1/4 cup bread crumbs

2 tsp vegetable oil

Mix together the potatoes, flour baking powder, eggs, and salt and pepper in a bowl. In another bowl, for the filling, mix the ground beef, onion, garlic salt, egg and bread crumbs until well-combined.

Heat the 2 teaspoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-low heat, and drop a rounded tablespoon of potato mixture into the hot skillet. Spread and flatten the pancake out a little, and place about 2 teaspoons of beef mixture on the pancake, spreading the filling out almost to the edges of the pancake. Drop another rounded tablespoon of potato mixture on top of the beef, and spread it out to completely cover the beef. Fry until the bottom of the pancake is golden brown, about 5 minutes, then flip and fry the other side until golden, 1 to 2 more minutes.

"Sorry, forgot to take a pic to see the fillings. was too hungry.. LoL"

Cheezy Tuna Melts I

Tuna melts are super easy and delish! A perfect recipe for a light lunch or dinner. It's good with some fruit, salad or potato chips.

I have not had tuna melts for a while so I decided to make these for dinner today. Since I do not have English muffins or other types of bread, I just used hot dog buns and regular white bread. Next time, I'll post more tuna melts. :)

Here is my recipe:
1 (6 counce) can tuna, drained
2 tablespoon Miracle Whip
1 fresh key lime (Mexican Lime) juice
a pinch of garlic & salt seasoning
a pinch of  black pepper
2 hot dog buns and 3 slices of white bread, toasted
slices of tomatoes
black olives
slices of sweet onion
slices of american cheese

Preheat oven to broil. Mix tuna, Miracle Whip, lime juice, black pepper and garlic and salt seasoning in a small bowl. Spread tuna mixture onto the bread and place them on a baking sheet. Top with a slice of tomato, a slice of sweet onions, some slices of black olives and a slice of cheese. Broil until cheese is melted, about 3 to 5 minutes.

This is my burnt cheese tuna melt but still taste good! ;)
