GF Shrimp Scampi - Quick and Easy

I've heard that Pinterest = Picture Porn and I know why. I'm addicted to the food photos on that site. There was one recipe yesterday that I just had to adapt to G-F and it is like a gastro-epiphany in the mouth, not kidding.

Heat 1 qt water in a saucepan to boiling-remove from heat. Drop in 1/3 package of Pad Thai noodles and set aside to soften.

In a wok or saute pan, heat

2 Tbs. olive oil, Add
1/2 tsp minced garlic and
1/2 tsp. minced ginger root. (I used the minced in a bottle in the produce section.) Stir in
1 pound peeled-devein'd raw shrimp--saute minutes, just til pink.

Pour 1/2 of the hot water off the softened noodles into the wok. Simmer with

1/4 cup sundried tomatoes (optional--but if you dried some last summer, throw them in.)
2 tbs. chicken bouillon, and
1 heaping tablespoon red curry paste. (I use Thai Kitchen)

2 teaspoons corn starch into
2 Tbs. water and pour into hot sauce in pan to thicken.

Drop in the drained noodles and sprinkle with lemon pepper and serve.

So delicious!

Reality Bite: I live in land-locked Oklahoma people, so I used cooked shrimp, not from the sea (but from Bentonville AK -- Sam's Club) and I added it last. I'll bet stir-fried veggies would be so good too.
