We are always in a rush, running around trying to manage our households, work with kids with homework, etc. etc. This recipe is quick and easy recipe can be prepared from start to finish in ten minutes. Most of us have these ingredients in our homes. If not, it is always good to have frozen shrimp in your freezer. Shrimp cooks easy and can be prepared in many ways. What I like with this dish is as you are cooking your pasta, you are preparing your shrimp and in no time your meal is ready for you and your family to enjoy. Cooking for one, you can easily heat it up for a nice lunch.

Notes

We are always rushing during the weekdays in order to prepare dinner. This dish is very easy and quick to make. A really delicious meal that can be served with a nice glass of white wine.
Please note, you can add a little grated Parmesan Reggiano to your pasta. Usually as a rule of thumb, seafood and cheese don’t mix well. but in this case  you could add some to your pasta.
