Shrimp Pasta Salad A Lane Family Favorite

Pasta Salad with Shrimp
~ A Lane Family Favorite ~


16 oz pasta cooked and drained
2 cups of fresh broccoli florets, cut in small pieces and steamed lightly
1 c chopped green pepper
1/2 c chopped green onion slices
1 cup tomato, chopped
16 oz of tiny frozen shrimp, thawed (I've also used imitation crab meat.)

Just a note, we like our salad creamy, so I double the dressing ingredients. The amounts below are the single ingredients. Try it as is, and make more if you'd like it creamier.

1 c Miracle Whip salad dressing
1/2 c Kraft House Italian dressing
1/4 c grated Parmesan cheese, I use Kraft.

I boil a box of macaroni in whatever shape and amount that I fancy. Rinse the pasta in cold water, drain, and refrigerate until ready to assemble.
Cut or chop all your veggies.
Rinse your shrimp in a colander under cold water and drain well.
Mix together the dressing and Miracle Whip. 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.
Add tomato right before serving so that it doesn't get soggy.


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.
