Shrimp Scampi with Pasta

Shrimp is one of my favorite things to eat.  I just love the taste.  Growing up shrimp cocktail was a must have at any special meal/event.  Now whenever I have shrimp I think something special is going on.

I have expanded my horizons from shrimp cocktail in the recent years.  Now it is one of my go to items to cook with. This is a meal we threw together in less than 10 minutes last Friday. Fridays are always hard for us to pull a meal together after a long work week and groceries are at the minimum in the fridge. I used a thawed bag of frozen shrimp which I stock up on when they go on sale at the store.

  1. My husband LOVES shrimp - this looks like a simple dinner I can surprise prepare for him one day and maybe throw some veggies or tofu in it for me to eat (I don't do shrimp)

  2. This looks delicious and so simple--I love whole wheat pasta, but don't eat it nearly enough.

  3. I can just imagine slurping all those yummy noodles. This looks fabulous. :)
