Old Bay Shrimp Pasta Salad

Here is a great Summer pasta salad courtesy of Old Bay seasoning. It has colorful veggies, shrimp and a zesty dressing. This will definitely be a hit at your next cookout. Feel free to swap out different vegetables. I added cherry tomatoes. And don't forget about the upcoming contest to win a gift bag from Old Bay. Keep checking back for details.

1 lb. cooked shrimp
2 cups small shell pasta, uncooked
1 cup celery, thinly sliced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1/2 small red onion, diced
1 package cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup mayonaise
1/4 cup Italian dressing, whatever is your favorite
2 tsps. Old Bay seasoning

Cook pasta in boiling salted water as directed on the package. Drain, rinse under cold water.

In a large bowl, toss pasta in with shrimp, celery, green and red pepper, onion and tomatoes.

In a small bowl, whisk the mayo, dressing and OLD BAY together. Pour over the pasta mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for two hours. Before serving, sprinkle with additional OLD BAY, if desired.

  1. This looks yummy! I will try with orzo instead of shells since I have a bunch leftover from the Ina Garten Roasted Shrimp and Orzo I made this week...glad to see I can do something with that tin of Old Bay sitting in the pantry. Thanks, Laura!
