Garlic Shrimp & Veggie linguine (15 minute meal!)

Let's be honest, sometimes you just need something quick and easy that tastes good and doesn't involve a drive through. This is a super easy recipe that checks all those boxes and doesn't require any advanced cooking techniques. If you can boil pasta, run a microwave, and put a pan on the stove you can make this recipe.

Ingredients

  • 1# of peeled and deveined shrimp, thawed

  • 1 bag frozen Asian vegetable blend (or whatever frozen veggies you like!)

  • 1 package of fresh pasta (dry takes longer but is also completely fine, use what you have!)

  • 2 TBSP of Extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 TBSP of butter or margarine

  • 2 TBSP of minced garlic (I buy the jarred version at Aldi)

  • 1/4 cup of white wine (I like Chardonay for this recipe, but again use what you have)

  • 1 TBSP of whole milk (or milk alternative)

  • 1 TBSP of garlic powder

  • 1 TSP of paprika (smoked if you have it!)

  • 1 TSP of onion powder

  • 1 TSP of rosemary

  • 1 TSP of sea salt


Directions

  • Heat olive oil over low heat in a large saute pan

  • Bring 2 quarts of salted water to a boil in a pot

  • Add dry spices and salt to the olive oil

  • Drain water from shrimp and add to the oil and spices mix, toss quickly to coat

  • Add your pasta to the boiling water and cook as instructed on package (2-3 minutes for fresh, 7-10 for dry)

  • Put veggies in the microwave and cook per package instructions (typically 5-7 minutes)

  • Add butter, minced garlic, and white wine to pan and saute on medium low heat until shrimp turns pink (typically 3-5 minutes per side, DO NOT OVER COOK THE SHRIMP!)

  • Once shrimp is cooked, turn off heat and leave in the pan

  • Drain cooked pasta and add to the pan with the shrimp

  • Drain excess water from steam veggies and add to the pan

  • Toss it all in the sauce until well coated

  • Serve and ENJOY!

There you have it, super simple and easy to execute. Believe it or not, you actually just made a simple ver blanc sauce. Look at you, you fancy huh?
