It all started with this Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp from The Pioneer Woman. I suggested to Jake that we do the shrimp with a pasta so he combined the shrimp with a garlic pasta sauce recipe. After looking through a few sites we can’t find the exact one he used, but basically it was combining parmesan cheese, olive oil and garlic along with some reserved pasta water and parsley to make the pasta. He also added some mushrooms to the mix just because we like them. I asked him what he’s calling this dish and he replied it’s Cheesy Shrimp Linguine.
OH MY GOODNESS!!! This was one of THE BEST pasta dishes I’ve had! The shrimp was so flavorful and the pasta had the perfect garlic taste without being too overwhelming. Baguettes toasted in the oven with mozzarella cheese on top were the perfect little slices to scoop up any extra sauce juiciness.
It has been at least three weeks since he made this and I’m still salivating over it just by looking at this photo. Jake plans on tweaking the pasta sauce to yield a bit more juice, but overall we loved it and cleaned our plates! I’m so lucky that the kids enjoy seafood as well and they devoured this too! Now…just to convince him to make this again sometime soon . ;)
