Fresh Pasta, Jumbo Shrimp and Garlic
(Sorry this picture is not that good....we didn't have time for a good photo shoot! Our bellies were calling....)
This has been a staple for us for a few years now. We always look for specials on fresh shrimp at our local grocer - sometimes we are blown away by the deals. (We get lobster tails too!) I have tried this with frozen shrimp and have had outstanding results. I like to keep a bag of frozen shrimp in the freezer for those nights when we want something delicious and quick.
What you will need:
Fresh Pasta - 1 pkg - 9oz.
1 Pound Jumbo Shrimp
1/4 cup butter
Olive Oil - drizzles
Crushed Garlic - 8 cloves

Fresh angel hair pasta cooks quick! About 2 minutes only.
Drain when done, drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking.
We are becoming a big fans of Fresh & Easy olive oils.
