Easy Healthy Shrimp Pasta

Since both Hungry and I are eating healthy, we’ve been doing a lot of home cooking. I’m lucky enough to have a partner who cooks food beautifully. He will even come home from a long day at work and cook for me, and it makes us both happy! Cooking at home is usually healthier (depends what restaurants you frequent), so we’ve been stocking up the fridge and pulling out the pans. These meals are especially special when we use wild caught seafood (a protein I will eat since it’s wild-caught). We have a great Bristol Farms in walking distance of us so we often go there and pick out some decent wild seafood. This time, it was shrimp. Mmm, mmm good! This recipe is simple and light–you will absolutely not feel heavy afterward. It packs a punch of flavor and will have you looking for more.

The smells wafting through your kitchen will be tantalizing to whoever you are cooking for. This recipe doesn’t take long. Probably the hardest part is cleaning out the shrimp, but you can get already de-veined shrimp if you don’t want to take the time to do so. There’s good protein and carbs in this dish with flavors to hold you over for the entire night. The smells will stay with your house for the next day too. Who doesn’t love basking in garlic? Make this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
