You know how some people talk about what they would eat if it was their last meal? Well mine would 100% for sure be shrimp scampi pasta. So you’ve got shrimp (yes), garlic (hell yeah), butter (omg yas), pasta (yassss carbssss), and WINE (hallelujah!) all combined into one plate of goodness = pure happiness in my belly.
I’ve cooked scampi so many times, I can’t even count. The pros of this is that I have tested many ways to make this dish, and finally feel I have “nailed” it. So when my fiancé made a special request for shrimp scampi for this week’s meal prep, I was more than happy to oblige. While this meal is definitely not the healthiest if you’re looking for weight loss prep, you can always swap the pasta for some zucchini noodles (my fav!) for a much lower-calorie and veggie friendly option.
Since we decided to go with the regular pasta for this week (we picked fettuccine instead of linguine this time around), we balanced out all the carbs with some huge leafy green salads topped with sliced red bell peppers, Persian cucumbers, radish, and broccoli. Even though this pasta is delicious, you can’t forget to get your greens in!
And now for the main event – the shrimp scampi recipe! I must say, writing this post has made me really hungry. I can just taste all the garlic now…. mmmm….. OK! Go forth and try this recipe – I can’t promise you won’t fall in love with it….
