One of my " go to " dinners that is inexpensive, easy and definitely not time consuming is a shrimp & pasta dish. It takes about 20 to 25 minutes from start to finish & everyone in my family loves it...even my VERY picky son.
1 pound Linguine or any pasta
2 tsp. sea salt for seasoning pasta water
1 pound cooked, cleaned, frozen shrimp
1 bunch green onions
4 mushrooms ( whatever is your favorite )
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Fresh parmesan cheese
Bring 4 qts. water to boil for pasta & shrimp
Once boiling, add pasta, and salt; cook for 10 minutes or as specified on packaging. After 5 minutes, add shrimp.
While pasta and shrimp are cooking, chop green onions diagonally for a pretty presentation, and slice mushrooms.
When pasta is finished boiling, drain, add approximately 4 tbs.( or so ) olive oil, and garlic salt to taste ( I don't measure...I just sprinkle for about 5 seconds ). Toss...
Add green onions and mushrooms.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
This is delicious when served with warm, crusty french bread and a tossed green salad.
Pair with a nice Chardonnay
