Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta

Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta is a light pasta dish mixing shrimp, fresh parsley and a lemon garlic butter sauce.  This seafood pasta recipe is a great for a romantic date night, a dinner party or a light weeknight meal. Pair with a good bottle of white wine, crusty bread and a salad.

It is the perfect dish for spring, a date night or when you want to pretend you are near the ocean enjoying fresh seafood. One thing I love about this dish is how easy it is to make. You can’t beat a 15 minute meal that is still elegant and delicious.


I like serving potatoes with our meals throughout the week. Some of my favorites are these Gouda Smashed Potatoes, Spicy Lebanese Potatoes or these Lemon Cilantro Potatoes.
