Shrimp Pasta

This is a very easy tasty meal, and can easily be made for 1-2 people or more. My sister shared this one with me. Thanks Heather!


All you need for two: 2 "generous" handfuls of cooked shrimp, 2 T of olive oil, 1 garlic clove chopped, small pinch of red pepper flakes or to taste (I didn't have red pepper flakes, so I just used what I had to season), juice of 1/2 lemon, small handful of chopped parsley, 1/2 lb of linguine, and salt and pepper to taste.

Before you begin start boiling a pot of water to cook the pasta
then...

Over medium heat, heat the olive oil and


Cook the garlic


and chili flakes until fragrant but not browned, about two minutes.


Then add the pasta and cook until your desired tenderness


Add the shrimp and cook in the oil and cook until thawed and warmed through, season with salt, pepper and parsley


Another picture turned wrong, but you get the idea, remove from heat and add the lemon juice. We added some fresh cherry tomatoes at this point and cooked those- completely optional.


Then pour in the pasta


Mix together well, if the pasta is too dry add a little olive oil.


And serve immediately!
