One Pot Garlic Shrimp Pasta

It seems that I tend to go through trends in my cooking life.  Recently, I’ve been in a total dessert mode (see here, here, and here), but I’ve now moved into a healthy dinner phase with this One Pot Garlic Shrimp Pasta.

One pot dishes are magical in my world.  They’re typically easy to make, include few ingredients, and minimal clean up.  This means more time on other important things, like spending time with my mother who is still in town for a short while longer.  While I love cooking and baking, any recipe that can save me valuable time in the kicthen deserves an A in my book!

One Pot Garlic Shrimp Pasta

I made this One Pot Garlic Shrimp Pasta last night and knew that it needed to immediately get up on the blog.  (This was primarily due to your SnapChat reactions to my pictures while making this meal – @SemiSweetTooth on SnapChat if you’re on there, too!  I love your messages and notes across the week, so please keep letting me know if there’s something you want to see on the blog in the near future!)
