Shrimp Pasta Medley

nellie rickey


This is my own concoction..out of frustration over loosing flavor in my pasta salads..this method works..and the flavor has been a big hit
I have found that NOT rinsing the pasta it absorbs the good flavors into the noodles..and even though is gets sticky the sauce will loosen it again

How to Make Shrimp Pasta Medley


  1. Boil lo mein noodles 4 minutes..drain..DO NOT RINSE..spread on a cookie sheet..sprinkle with 1 Tbs of dry hidden valley ( reserve remaining to make dressing)..gently toss..let cool with a damp towel over it for over night..(at least 2 hours refig.) It is going to look stiff..
  2. Chop all vegetables..put noodles in a big bowl..use kitchen shears and cut up into shorter lengths..add vegetables and cooked shrimp
  3. Mix the sour cream and mayo with reserved dry hidden valley ranch ( do not subsitute..I buy the jar of hidden valley instead of the packets) mix with pasta...add a little milk or cream if you like a thinner dressing
  4. let salad sit in frig for 30 minutes and enjoy
