Shrimp Pasta Salad A Lane Family Favorite

Pasta Salad with Shrimp
~ A Lane Family Favorite ~


16 oz macaroni (or amount for your family size)
1 green pepper
1 package or head of broccoli, cut in small pieces and steamed lightly
1 chopped onion or green onion slices
1 tomato, chopped
16 oz of tiny frozen shrimp, thawed (I've also used imitation crab meat.)
A bottle of Kraft House Italian dressing
Miracle Whip
Lots of grated Parmesan Cheese, I use Kraft.
I boil a box of macaroni in whatever shape and amount that I fancy. I usually make 16 oz because there are 6 of us. You can use whatever size is appropriate for your family. Rinse the pasta in cold water, drain, and refrigerate.
Cut or chop all your veggies.
Rinse your shrimp in a colander under cold water and drain well.
Mix together equal parts of the dressing and Miracle Whip. We use a lot because we really like our salad creamy. Add salt & pepper and lots of grated Parmesan cheese to your taste.
Now, mix it all together and let it chill for a few hours.
My kids and husband absolutely love this.
I hope your family does, too.
God bless you,


  1. Sounds wonderful!! I'm going to have to add shrimp to my grocery list for this week.

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Oooh, I haven't had this salad in years and I love it -- thanks for posting!

  3. This sounds too good. We love broccoli and shrimp! Thanks for posting this!

  4. My husband loves shrimp. I do not, so he usually does not get it much. I think I need to remedy that and this is a good place to start. Thanks for the recipe.
