Garlic Shrimp Risotto

Garlic Shrimp RisottoThis post is brought to you by Mirum . All opinions are my own.

We’re all busy. Busy could be my middle name actually (that would mean my initials would be PBJ – lol) I’ve been so busy this year I can hardly believe it’s Fall. With Fall comes back to school for many and the beginning of holiday planning for all. Gasp, I just realized Thanksgiving is next month. With everything going on though, it’s important to still find time to enjoy tasty meals with your family. Dinner doesn’t have to be complicated, or mean you have to go through a drive thru. You can create easy weeknight recipes full of delicious flavor and real ingredients with the help of new Knorr Selects—Real ingredients. Real taste. They’re available at your local Food Lion in the rice aisle!


Garlic Shrimp Risotto

I happen to live in a very small town. Food Lion is the closest grocery store to my house, which means I shop there a lot. It’s quick, convenient and I know exactly where everything is located in the store. That is a huge plus for me because I like to get in and out (did I mention I was busy?)


Knorr Selects

Knorr Selects are gluten free and don’t contain artificial flavors or preservatives! They’re available in the following varieties: Four Cheese Risotto, Asiago Cheese & Cracked Black Pepper Rice, Roasted Garlic Alfredo Rice, White Cheddar Broccoli Rice, Rustic Mexican Rice & Beans, and Spinach & Artichoke Rice flavors. Options, you know we love them.

We’ve chosen the Four Cheese Risotto to create this Easy Garlic Shrimp Risotto. So easy, it takes less than 30 minutes. We did say easy after all.

Pan sauteed shrimp combine with the creamy risotto and kale for a complete meal that’s perfect for any busy weeknight.
