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!

  • A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend! Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift.
