I have been so busy with work lately, and I know many of you are too. That’s what got me thinking that you may be interested in an easy/quick dinner recipe. This easy weeknight shrimp pasta is something I have been making for years. I’m excited to finally share it with you – I posted a picture of this shrimp pasta months ago on my Instagram account and received a ton of comments and questions.
Shrimp Pasta is a Quick and Easy Dinner
When I get really busy with work, I rely on a handful of easy dinners to get through the week. I don’t always have time (or energy) to prep a ton of ingredients so I try to have non-perishables like canned mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes on hand. This dish takes me about 30 minutes TOPS start-to-finish. With so many simple ingredients and so little prep time, this is the perfect weeknight meal.
My dad first created this recipe many years ago. I’ve since added a few of my own personal twists like fresh parsley and cream. I’ve always loved his shrimp pasta because it is so easy but sure to impress. You really can’t mess this up!
If you don’t like cooking with wine or if you have children, you can use chicken broth in its place. It will change the taste a bit but the pasta will still be very flavorful. And to make the dish even lighter, you can leave out the heavy cream or substitute with half-and-half. I also wanted to note that if you do not like spicy foods, consider leaving out the red pepper flakes.
It’s so easy and safe to experiment with this pasta dish. Try adding in fresh grape tomatoes, broccoli or bell peppers and let me know what you come up with!
If you’re looking for something to jazz up your weeknight meals, give this shrimp pasta and a try and let me know how you like it. I am so excited to share something so simple from my kitchen to yours.
