I don’t know if you guys understand how hard it is to make post titles. Like, I want to give you the best possible idea of how freaking awesome the recipe is…. this always leads me to trying to list as many ingredients as possible in the post title. If I had my way each post title would look more like “GARLIC PARMESAN FRESH ITALIAN PARSLEY LEMON OLIVE OIL PASTA – SO GOOD YOU NEED TO MAKE IT NOW.” But really that would not fit on anyone’s screen and I would just end up looking like a crazy. Anyways, I just wanted you all to know the struggle is real over here. Very very real.
Alright team. This pasta is killer. Summer is coming and I am all about fresh flavours, and eating as much seafood as possible! This Skinny Belle recipe is soooo easy and the flavour is just unreal.
What’s in it:
- Large handful fresh Italian parsley
- 3 garlic cloves
- Frozen shrimp (or fresh if you are ballin like that)
- Lemon juice
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Ground sea salt
- Grated parmesan cheese
Start by boiling a pot of water with a pinch of salt in it. Cook your spaghetti as the instructions say on the package, or until al-dante. Once the pasta is cooked, drain the water and stir in a little olive oil to stop it from sticking together in the pot. Set aside.
Now you need to prep your parsley. Wash it thoroughly then chop it up really fine. Once this is done take a frying pan and cook your shrimp as directed on the packaging. I used pre-cooked shrimp so this only took a few minutes.
In a separate frying pan heat up a few generous “glugs” of olive oil to medium heat. Add in your parsley and let soften up for a few minutes, then add in about 3 cloves of crushed garlic (or however much you prefer.) Let this simmer together for a few minutes. Now, add your cooked pasta to this mixture. Take your fresh lemon and squeeze it on top! Add your salt and pepper to taste, and finally add the cooked shrimp. Mix this all together and then garnish with fresh parmesan cheese! Anddddd done!!!
SO YUMMY. This is a really big comfort dish to me, and a regular occurrence in my kitchen. What do you guys think?! Will you be making this Skinny Belle recipe? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
