Simple Shrimp Scampi

Shrimp scampi, ahhhh. So good.

Shrimp Scampi is such an easy dish to prepare, and it always turns out so nice. It could easily be made for a special occasion like an anniversary or a birthday, and you won’t feel like you were slaving over a hot stove all day.

I love the flavors and the simplicity of this particular recipe. We think you’ll love it too!  

This recipe cooks in 20 minutes. Not bad for how delicious it is. I like how light it feels even though it’s a pasta dish. YUM!
