6 Months…

Really, it’s been seven. What’s up with that? Oh, yeah… life. ;)

Ah, no rest for the weary. Anyway. Today I made scampi. It’s one of those fallback recipes for when life is super busy, school has taken up the majority of the day, and I haven’t been able to go to the store. Plus, scampi is full of flavor, and only has five ingredients. How can you go wrong with that?



Easy Shrimp Scampi
Recipe type: Pasta

A quick and easy five ingredient dinner.
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • ½ cup butter
  • 8 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 lb pasta of your choice (I alternate between spaghetti and penne)

  1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
  2. In a separate pan, melt butter over medium heat.
  3. Once butter is melted and starting to foam, add garlic and cook until fragrant (about 2 minutes).
  4. Add shrimp. Cook until the shrimp turns pink (should take less than 5 minutes).
  5. Add parsley and pasta. Stir to coat pasta with sauce. Enjoy!
