Shrimp Scampi Pasta

shrimp and pasta

Shrimp scampi is one of my favorite shrimp dishes. I love it on the side with a nice juicy steak. Now that’s some good stuff. We all know when you add pasta to anything it makes it better. Now we combine them and make a dish that is to die for. No longer is scampi just a side dish now with the addition of some angel hair pasta we have an awesome entre. You can have dinner on the table in under 30 minutes, perfect for an easy weeknight meal.
