scrumptious shrimp pasta : recipe

Shrimp Pasta 6-1This recipe is one that I chose to make for the first time on Good Friday, in lieu of being able to eat any meat that day. Now, one could argue that shrimp is in fact a type of meat. I often did when I was a vegetarian. However, my parents have always permitted us to eat fish on said religious holiday. Thus, overlooking the debate and rather following my own traditions, my in-laws and I happily devoured this scrumptious meal of shrimp pasta.

Here are the instructions on how to make it:

Shrimp Pasta 1Ingredients:

shrimp
fettuccine pasta
spinach
red pepper
mushrooms
lemon
butter
salt
pepper
garlic powder
sesame seeds
parmesan 

Steps:

1. Place shrimp in a bowl. Add lemon, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well, then set it aside.

2. Shred spinach. In a medium pot, add pasta and spinach to boiling water. Cook through. Remove from heat and drain. Add sesame seeds.

Shrimp Pasta 23. Slice the red peppers and mushrooms. Heat butter in a medium skillet. Add red peppers and mushrooms. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until brown, approximately 10 minutes.

Shrimp Pasta 34. Combine vegetable mixture to pasta in a large roaster. Add butter and shrimp mix. Place in oven at 200°F and cook for 30 minutes. This is done to simply warm the pasta.

Shrimp Pasta 55. Remove from oven. Garnish with parmesan. Enjoy!

Shrimp Pasta 7I did not add the measurements for this recipe because I believe in adding ingredients to one’s own personal taste. That, and I steadfastly refuse to directly follow any recipe. I simply look at the instructions, and decipher how much of each ingredient I will ultimately add. Cooking should be about having fun, and trial and error. I tried this recipe once, and I know that I will certainly make it again. It was the most delicious pasta that I have made to date.

    The way you cook this pasta dish turns it festive, it looks awesome but is pasta not overcooked this way?

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
