Italian Shrimp Bake with Pasta – couldn’t get any easier than pasta dish and it could be on your dinner table in 20 minutes tops! Succulent buttery shrimp in a savory lemon butter sauce served over a bed of pasta.
Can you believe the month of August is almost over? Seriously though, it feels liked I blinked and summer is almost over, though we’ve had a very weird summer and I can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m almost looking forward to the winter so that I can take advantage of the sunny days. I even heard the ice cream truck the other day and thought it was weird, because that was honestly the only time I had heard it this summer, and trust me I usually hear them!
But we’re not here to talk about weather and ice cream trucks, though I could go for an ice cream just about now, but more than that, I could go for another one of these bowls loaded with these succulent and decadent shrimp piled on top of some fettuccine with that incredible rich buttery sauce. Yeah, it’s really good, so good that even hubs said he loved it, and this is from a man who cringes every time I make anything with pasta.
Yes, I served this over fettuccine but you could have this with some salad, make it a warm salad, pour this sauce over some kale and you’ve got yourself a super yummy lunch. The shrimp is so delicious and melts in your mouth, honestly you only need a small portion of this and you’ll be truly satisfied. And after, yeah can go ahead and have that ice cream from the ice cream truck.
This is so embarrassingly easy to make, all you need is to whisk all the sauce ingredients together, toss the shrimp in it and bake it. While you’re baking the shrimp you can go ahead and boil your pasta. In 20 minutes, you’ve got an amazing dinner on your table.
