How to Make a Shrimp Pasta Salad

This Shrimp Pasta Salad is an easy, quick and lite meal  for any night of the week; especially on those hot nights when you don’t want to turn on your oven. This recipe is almost identical to my tuna noodle salad.  Serves 6 Total Time: 25 minutes


1 lb cooked shrimp, deveined, rinsed and drained (I had medium size shrimp I cut in half)
1 bunch green onion, finely chopped or 1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped 
1⁄4 teaspoon salt, to taste
1⁄4 teaspoon lemon pepper, to taste
1 1⁄2 cups celery, chopped 
1 cup Italian salad dressing 
3⁄4 cup mayonnaise 
1⁄4 cup lemon juice (1 lemon)
1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated 
8 -10 ounces pasta (I used large macaroni)


Marinate shrimp, onion, celery, salt and lemon pepper in the Italian dressing in a large salad bowl. Cook the pasta in boiling water, to which a dollop of cooking oil has been added, for 3 to 4 minutes. Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Toss together the pasta and marinate mixture. Add mayonnaise, lemon juice and Parmesan cheese. Toss salad; sprinkle more cheese on top.
