Easy Shrimp Scampi Pasta

I adore Shrimp Scampi. In fact, it’s one of those things I could eat several times a week and never tire of it. But that isn’t really practical.

With my busy schedule making shrimp scampi often isn’t exactly in my weeknight plans.

So I came up with this Easy Shrimp Scampi Pasta recipe and it’s easy to throw together on a busy weeknight.

It is truly the perfect combination of lemony goodness, with a creamy delicious sauce that coats the thinner angel hair pasta.

My family doesn’t seem to be able to get enough of this, so often I have to double the recipe so my son can take another serving to work with him (he works nights), and so that there are more for leftovers, since we all love them so much.

And then there’s me. I work from home, so having something I can heat up quickly while I am working is a big bonus.

So if you want leftovers, be sure and double the recipe. If you want just enough to serve 4, make this Easy Shrimp Scampi Pasta recipe as is as serve it with a salad.

Now don’t feel like you have to use it as is, either.

If your family doesn’t care for Shrimp, that’s okay, substitute chicken or another protein. Scampi works with all sorts of proteins just fine.

Also, we use fresh shrimp we pick up from our grocery store seafood department typically, HOWEVER you can use frozen uncooked (raw) shrimp. Just be sure to thaw it before use.

Seems like there are a few steps missing in the directions??

8 cloves of unpeeled garlic are not addressed, and the heavy cream and Parmesan are not included either?

I'm so sorry, it looks like when I changed my recipe plugin it pulled and combined two recipes. Not sure why, or how that happened. It's fixed now and I truly appreciate you bringing that to my attention!
