Truth be told, I’m not a big pasta lover.

I KNOW RIGHT. WHO AM I?

Not a fan of too much sauce or tons of cheese. Not interested. Now if you mention seafood of any kind, suddenly, you have ALL my attention!

I love me some seafood pasta. One with light, fresh flavors like this Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta? Even better!

This is one of those “last minute” dinners you make when you have company coming over. When you want a quick middle of the week dinner? That too. If you’re like me, there’s always shrimp in the freezer, angel hair pasta in your pantry, and lemon and garlic in your kitchen. If you’re not like me, you can still make this in minutes with proper planning!

This came together so quickly, I didn’t even realize I was done when I was. Sauté the garlic and onion, then add the shrimp with the lemon juice, and finally toss in the cooked angel hair. Little effort, BIG flavors is how I roll in these parts.

Try this out and let me know what you think!

I promise you will be impressed. :)
