Spicy Shrimp with Garlic Basil Linguine

This was a quick and delicious meal that really hit the spot. I'm a big fan of Trader Joe's products, and their garlic basil linguine in this dish did not disappoint. I love meals that don't use a lot of ingredients but are still very flavorful. With the shrimp and a salad, this was just enough for the two of us.

Spicy Shrimp with Garlic Basil Linguine

8 oz garlic basil linguine
10 oz thawed, peeled, and deveined shrimp
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
juice of 1/4 lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste


Bring 3-4 quarts of salted water to a boil and cook pasta for 4-6 minutes in boiling water.
Drain pasta and toss with 1 tbsp olive oil to coat and keep warm.

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a skillet and cook minced garlic until fragrant. Add shrimp and crushed red pepper, cooking until shrimp are pink and opaque.

Add shrimp mixture, Parmesan cheese, and lemon to pasta. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

That looks really good! I almost went to TJ's when I was in Green Hills today... but I went to Victoria's Secret instead! Haha... I'll have to pick some of that up next time I go.
