Shrimp and Noodles

We had shrimp and noodles tonight.  That's what our boys call this, and they love it.  We all really enjoy it.  Aaron and I gave it a 9, and Owen and Noah gave it a perfect 10.  If you have your shrimp shelled, like I did thanks Mom :), this comes together in about 10-15 minutes.  It's a great week night meal, and my kids just gobble it up.  The calories for 1/6 of the total are 355, and that's using skim milk.
Shrimp and Noodles

1/2  cup milk
2 T butter
½ pint cream
¼ tsp poultry seasoning
¼ tsp cayenne (adjusted to taste)
1/4 tsp onion powder  1 T garlic salt, scant tablespooon
8 oz bowtie pasta
1 lb shrimp

Mortar spices well. Put cream and milk in pan with butter and ½ spice mixture. Thicken and reduce, and set aside. Cook pasta to the al dente stage.  Sauté shrimp in pan sprayed with cooking spray, with remaining spice mixture. Mix shrimp, sauce, and pasta together and serve.
We only wish the sauce were thicker, the same way it gets the second day.  That's why Aaron and I give it a 9.  We also had delicious corn with this, thanks also to Mom and Dad, you guys are so great :)
Tomorrow we're having a chicken and potatoes dish and a vegetable salad.
