Shrimp ‘n’ Noodle Bowls

Here's a quick meal that feels as if it came from a restaurant. Cooked shrimp, bagged slaw and bottled dressing reduce the time needed to get it on the table. —Mary Bergfeld, Eugene, Oregon

      This is a really good recipe. It was easy to put together, and tasted like a restaurant version. Not a huge fan of cilantro, I am one of those 'I use it, but when I do, I use it sparingly' people. Suggestion here is to simply watch out how much cilantro you put in. Fresh cilantro can easily over power a dish like this so be careful. Excellent as leftovers after a night in the fridge and nice and cold.

      Great concept but needs a lot of doctoring. Peanuts or almonds a must. If you are eating cold, diced red peppers. I also added 2 minced garlics to the dressing before applying. Oregano or dill also recommended.

      Well, I'm in the minority on this one. I used only half the cilantro and didn't put in the onions. I used the Toasted Sesame Asian Dressing and think spaghetti because I don't like the texture of angel hair pasta. I can't get any taste at all. Kinda feel like it was a waste of my beautiful shrimp. I had thought of frying t all and now have read in the reviews someone did that. That may release the flavors. Also, I will let it sit overnight and that may help also.

      Perfect as a main dish or side dish! I served this warm - I mixed it all together immediately after draining the pasta (I didn't rinse it in cold water) - and it was delicious. The warm noodles combined with the cold crunch of the slaw beautifully. It's easy enough for a "throw together" dinner but is visually elegant enough to serve for company. This recipe's a keeper!

      Made a few changes because used what I already had in the kitchen- used Ramen noodles instead of Angel Hair
