1 package (12 ounces or about 5 cups) uncooked egg noodles
3 tablespoons butter
2 pounds fresh sliced mushrooms
3 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
3 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1½ cup low-sodium chicken stock
1½ cup low-sodium beef stock
1 cup whipping cream
1½ pound frozen, deveined salad shrimp
2 cups chopped sugar snap peas
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup sliced almonds


Two 9x13 foil pans

2. Melt butter in a separate skillet. Add mushrooms and rosemary. Let cook for about 8 minutes until tender and golden brown.

4. Remove from heat. In the large stockpot, mix the sauce with pasta, shrimp, and sugar snap peas. Divide mixture between two 9x13-inch pans. Top with grated Parmesan cheese and sliced almonds.

5. Wrap pans in plastic wrap and label.
