This recipe for Pasta and Shrimp is the left-over result from a small dinner party. We bought a pound of Costco’s cooked shrimp seasoned with fresh cilantro and limes as an appetizer, they were well received and enjoyed by our guests.

Couple of days later we were fridge grazing.  Out come the leftover shrimp, in went our hungry little fingers when Stella said, “Stop! I’ve got a better idea.  Boil some water for pasta while I dice some shallots.”  I did, she did and we enjoyed this really great and super easy dish of shrimp and pasta.

It’s really amazing what you can up with on a moments notice.  Pasta, olive oil, shallots, some shrimp and a little parmesan cheese and you’ve got a quick, easy and satisfying meal, prepared in the time it takes to boil water.  Nice.
