There is nothing like an elegant homemade dish that is quick to prepare for yourself or the whole family. Lemon Shrimp Scampi Pasta is a twist on a classic seafood dish that will leave you wanting more. The most important element to this pasta is the tender and juicy shrimp.
The lemon juice adds a brightness to the meal that makes it very fresh to the taste. I bought large fresh shrimp that were already cleaned and deveined; I recommend spending a little extra money and letting the seafood department take care of this task for you.
Preparing pasta that does not include a jar of sauce may seem like something you can only get a restaurant, but I guarantee that is not the case. Simply saute your shrimp with garlic, and make your sauce with butter, lemon, chicken broth and few other ingredients. The pasta will start to absorb the flavor of the sauce and reduce to the perfect consistency. If you let it reduce too much, you can also add more oil and chicken broth.
