Lemon Shrimp Pasta

May 25, 2010

This is one of those simple dishes that are real fast to throw together and you can season it to your liking.  This works as a hot dish in the winter and a cool dish in the summer.  You can usually get this done in less than 30 minutes, depending on how fast you are at deveining shrimp.

Tools:

1 medium pot

Collander

Sharp Knife

Pasta Spoon

Ingredients:

Shrimp

Pasta

Italian Seasoning

Butter

Lemon (or lemon juice)

Green Onion

Directions:

Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the pasta:

  Push the pasta into the water gently.  Add seasoning to the water if you like (I added fresh basil this time):

When the pasta has about 5 minutes left, put your shrimp in the water right alongside the pasta:

By putting the shrimp right in the water, you make the dish come together faster AND you save yourself another dish to clean!

Once the pasta is done, drain into a collander:

Put it all into the serving bowl and toss with some butter (this will help the noodles to not stick, if you prefer, you can use olive oil):

Add a generous sprinkling of Italian Seasoning:

Slice up the green onion and put those on top as well:

Squeeze a fresh lemon over the entire thing:

Then, gently toss until well mixed:

 

Serve:

  My Comments:

This is a really simple dish that is really good.  It’s a family staple around here because of it’s simplicity.  When I come home after a long day, it’s so easy to throw this together while I get things put away.  It’s fast, simple, and easy!
