Monday's Meatless Meal: Seafood Spaghetti

On Ash Wednesday and during all Fridays during Lent, Catholics abstain from eating meat as a form of fasting and penance.  For more information about the history of Lent, I would encourage you to read What are the origins of Lent? Did the Church always have this time before Easter? 
In the article I learned something new when it stated, "The word Lent itself is derived from the Anglo-Saxon words lencten, meaning "Spring," and lenctentid, which literally means not only "Springtide" but also was the word for "March," the month in which the majority of Lent falls."

I wanted to share this very easy and yummy dish that we often eat, especially on Fridays during Lent.  This meal, Seafood Spaghetti, is what I brought to the St. Joseph Feast Day celebration that I recently blogged about.  My Aunt gave my family the recipe and it's always a hit!
Here are the ingredients:
1 or 2 cans of tiny shrimp
1 pound of spaghetti or linguine
2 cans of Progresso White Clam Sauce 
(I find the white clam sauce cans near the spaghetti sauces in the store)
1 can minced clams

Here's what you do:
Cook noodles as directed on package
Drain and clean shrimp
Mix shrimp, clams, white clam sauce together and heat.
Pour over cooked noodles

That's it!  This is one of the quickest recipes I have and it's one of my family's favorites!
Let me know if you try it and how like it :)

Hi Tracy,

This dish looks great! I can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing. I am always looking for something meatless for Friday's. I have been doing lots of eggs, and bean soups. This will be a great addition to our meals. Have a great day! I clicked a vote for you.

That looks really good. I'll have to try this one out.

Hi Anna-Marie,
I hope you get to try out the recipe! It really is easy and good! :) Have a blessed day!

Hi Kimberly,
Our family eats so much meat, that abstaining from meat dishes during Lent is really a sacrifice and takes effort to remember :) I'm always looking for meatless dishes too because cheese pizza can get old! :) Hope you enjoy the dish if you try it! clicked a vote for you too today, Tuesday. :)

Hi Christine,
Let me know how you like it if you end up making it :) Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Hi Tracy,
