Headache or not, I need to eat and my sweet husband has very limited culinary skills (with the exception of his Weber grilling skills-- and he rocks with that). So, when I want to make something fast, it's usually pasta. I always have pasta on hand, and so I decided to make Ina Garten's Spaghetti Aglio e Olio, from her cookbook "How Easy Is That?"
You'll need fresh Italian parsley and some red pepper flakes, too.
I then added most of the tomatoes, and gave them a quick saute.
Now, add one cup of fresh Parmesan and fresh chopped Italian parsley. Pretty. On a whim, I added some lemon zest to the pasta, to complement the shrimp.
Toss to combine; then add the cooked shrimp-- which is totally optional.
Dinner, in under 30 minutes. Italian food is my favorite fast food.
TASTING NOTES: Yum. Mmmm. Delicious. The garlic is sweet, and not overpowering. This satisfies my need for food, and my husband loves it, as well. This is super fast, and easy fast dinner for those nights when you don't want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Love this! I think that, if you make this once, you really don't need a recipe. Super Easy, Super Delicious!
How easy is that?!
Off to get a good night's rest-- Monday morning comes really fast. A printable recipe card is at the end of this post.
