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:

fettuccine pasta
red pepper
garlic powder
sesame seeds


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.
