Shrimp and Pasta Recipe

Hey guys! Looking for an easy, delicious, weeknight meal? Well here it is! I love this shrimp and pasta and I find it filling as well. It’s very simple and only needs a few ingredients. I will note though that I totally made up this recipe so the ingredients amounts is not as exact as I’d like it to be. Maybe some day!


You will need:

  • One box of pasta
  • Frozen shrimp (the number depends on how many you want in each serving)
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic (I use pre-cut from a jar)
  • Oregano
  • Parsley
  • Salt
  • Pepper

If your shrimp is frozen (this is ideal because frozen shrimp is way easier and cheaper than fresh shrimp from the fish counter), start by thawing it so it is ready to go into the sauce.

Start the pasta in boiling water. I combined shapes of pasta for this recipe just because I had a little bit left in one box and a little bit left in another box. Just check that you coordinate the times.


Once the pasta has about 5 minutes remaining start the sauce in a frying pan. Coat the bottom of the pan with olive oil, add oregano, garlic, and parsley to taste, and put in the shrimp.


Once the shrimp are cooked (don’t let the garlic get too browned) the sauce is ready to go on the pasta once it is done and strained. Easy peasy! I like to add salt and pepper once the sauce is already done and on the pasta.

Let me know if you try this recipe out and if you enjoyed it!
