This delicious and healthy Lemon Shrimp Pasta Skillet will be on your dinner table in 20 minutes!
There have been stretches of time during the past few years when I have been in a complete fog. Having a child with chronic sleep issues takes a toll on all of us at times. There was a period of time last summer when I could have walked right onto the set of Walking Dead and begun gnawing on people's limbs. I remember going to the post office one day during that stretch to mail a package. I got all the way to the counter before realizing I had forgotten my purse at home. I retrieved it, went back to the P.O. and mailed the package. I then went out to my car to discover that I had lost my keys. When I went back inside to look for them, the lady behind the counter looked genuinely concerned. I do stuff like this all the time. Today I completed an entire workout at the gym with my pants on backwards. Please tell me I'm not the only one and that some day I will feel normal again.
It is on my more foggy-brained days that I particularly appreciate EASY dinner recipes like this One-Pan Rice and Beans Taco Skillet and this Chicken Artichoke Pasta Skillet and this Easy One-Pan Pasta Skillet. This Lemon Shrimp Pasta Skillet was ridiculously easy, even for an absent-minded gal like myself. I have listed a serving size of 4-6, but in all honesty I consumed most of this in one sitting. I saved a tiny scoop or two for my cute hubby.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add a package of frozen shrimp and cook until heated through and pink, approximately 4-5 minutes.
Add parsley, lemon juice, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
Cook for another couple minutes and add cooked farfalle (or other medium-sized) pasta.
Cook until heated through and serve!
Even a zombie can do this. Trust me.
