Lemon Spaghetti with Shrimp

I love the look of this pasta blend…..

Isn’t everyone looking for quick recipes now that summer is here (may not be summer where you live but to me May in Texas is summer). Who has time to cook anyway? (Honestly, I still enjoy it.) I’m probably the only person that looks for hard recipe with lots of ingredients. This isn’t one of those and you can do it with or without the carrots and zucchini. If you want all pasta go for it.

Firey Angel Hair Pasta

Fire in the pasta!

I love pasta. Even though we don’t eat it often. When I do, I want my pasta simple with a lot of flavor.

I saw Giada do this on Everyday Italian a couple of years ago and knew instantly that it would meet our criteria of simple and spicy.

This dish is great served on it’s own or as a side dish to any meal. We love it with my husbands grilled salmon that we do with olive oil, lemon pepper and lots and lots of dill weed. He smokes this over a wood fire and is delicious along side this pasta or vise versa the pasta as a side with the salmon. It’s hard to decide who is the star of the plate.

My other favorite to serve with this combo is Giadas Italian chopped salad which has white beans, romaine, sun-dried tomatoes and radicchio. I will be posting that recipe soon because I think it will become one of your favorites.
