Lemon Butter Pasta with Steamed Shrimp and Broccoli

[donotprint]lemon butter pasta with shrimp and broccoli

I had the most amazing time at BlogHer and I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the beauty of the women that I met.  My mind is still reeling but there will be posts to come to show and hopefully put words to the emotions and excitement that have my heart bursting at it’s fullness.

This pasta might be the easiest pasta and sauce that I have ever made.


Lemon Butter Pasta with Steamed Shrimp and Broccoli

  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • Dash of salt and pepper
  • 3/4 box of Barilla Linguini, cooked
  • 1 lb shrimp
  • 1 Old Bay seafood steamer bag with seasoning
  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the box.  While the pasta is cooking follow the directions on the steamer bag and cook shrimp in the microwave. (this is so easy, you won’t believe it)
  2. Cook broccoli (or zucchini or squash or whatever veggie you’d like to add to the pasta)
  3. Over medium heat on the stove melt the butter and add the lemon zest and juice, salt and pepper and stir frequently until the butter is melted and fully incorporated.
  4. Drain the pasta, toss with the sauce, top with shrimp and broccoli.

Add a dash of grated parmesan and serve.  Simple, Delicious and Quick! YUM[donotprint]

    1. Absolutely!! I LOVE spinach! I would toss the spinach into the sauce pan (after it’s been tossed into the pasta) and let it cook just enough in that to wilt a bit, all the while *swishing* it around in the leftover sauce then, just add it to the pasta, toss and serve.

      It was great to finally meet you!!!! Glad you survived the car ride!
