One Pot Garlic Shrimp Pasta

A simple post with a simple recipe this week to celebrate the holiday this upcoming weekend. Happy 4th of July to everyone in the States!

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.

Especially on holiday weeks like this shortened week we’re in now, 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 family and a friend 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 kitchen deserves an A in my book!
