Please join us in congratulating Daryl for the release of Fudging the Books and Peg for Berried Secrets! What a week.
We love dinners in a pan. They’re fast and fun and surprisingly tasty. We were waiting for things to cool off before trying this one again, but then we decided what the heck.
SPEEDY SHRIMP PASTA IN A PAN
This one is so easy and fast, especially if you have a bit of leftover pasta. We didn’t (having used it all in salad), but face it, it takes a few minutes to cook some up. We used linguine but have liked this with rotini or bows as well. Just use your favorite. While the water’s boiling, you can defrost your shrimp and slice your green onions, mince your garlic, squeeze the lemon and heat the pan.
Cook the green onions for three minutes over medium heat.
They will smell great! Add the garlic and cook for another minute or two. Don’t let the garlic burn.
Sprinkle with the teaspoon of sugar. This makes quite a difference in bringing out the flavor of the shrimp.
Cook stirring until the shrimp is pink, about three minutes. Don’t overcook!
Heat for another minute or so and you’re done.
Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve with a simple salad.
Enjoy! And use the time saved to read a good book.
