Garlic Shrimp Pasta

Garlic Shrimp Pasta
I was out and about running errands all day and knew I wouldn't  have much time to fuss over dinner.  Knowing the day would be running long, I transferred the shrimps from the freezer to the refrigerator to thaw earlier in the morning.  Within 15 minutes, dinner for 4 was served and it was accompanied by a salad.

Garlic shrimp pasta is a very quick and no-fuss dish that is full of flavour and takes minutes to prepare.  Removing the shrimp's shell is the most time consuming part of this meal, but this can be done while the pasta water is coming to a boil.

Don't be afraid to experiment and add a little green to this dish, even if it's just a spring onion during the cooking process.  This will add flavour on top of colour.  If you're looking for an even prettier presentation, sprinkle some fresh chopped parsley overtop just before serving.

Depending on your need, this could be a quick fix meal for someone that doesn't have a lot of time after a hectic day or this could be turned into a gourmet dish for a party of 2 or more.
