Try It Thursday: Shrimp Scampi Pasta

A friend recently texted me that there are only four more weeks until spring break, and I could not be happier (or more desperate) for this break! I'm sharing a shrimp pasta dish that I make for my boys based on THIS recipe from Damn Delicious. They love it, and I'm sure I would too if I still ate shrimp (gives me horrible migraines). This would make a great Friday night dish for any of you who observe Lent. And, I know we're super late to the game, but we started using Tony Chachere's recently and sprinkle that on EVERYTHING! Link-up with me to share your favorite recipe of the week, and I hope you enjoy this dish!

* 2 tablespoons butter
* 1 pound thawed deveined shrimp (tails off at our house!)
* 3 cloves minced garlic
* 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
* 1/4 cup chicken broth
* ~ 1/4 cup lemon juice (I use just a bit less)
* Salt
* Pepper
* Tony Chachere's
* 1 box of pasta, cooked (We like mini farfalle.)
* Parmesan cheese

* Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet on medium high.
* Add 3 cloves of minced garlic and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes.

* Add shrimp, and cook 2-3 minutes until pink.

* Stir in 1/4 cup chicken broth and a little less than 1/4 cup of lemon juice.
* Season to taste with salt, pepper, and Tony Chachere's.
* Bring to a simmer.

* Add pasta.

* Top with parmesan. My boys like to add a little more red pepper flakes.

* Enjoy!

  1. Looks delicious! We love shrimp fettuccine, especially my Emma. She would eat this for every meal haha!!

    1. Kids are so funny with their tastes. Trip will eat every creature found under the sea, and Ari would rather starve than eat shrimp! Thanks for stopping by!
