Trader Joe's Tuesday -- Light & Lemony Shrimp, Oh My!

I just made this and it was deeeeeeeeelicious! This seriously takes about 10 minutes.

Trader Joe's Shopping List

Veggie Section
Sliced White Mushrooms
Fresh Chives

Dry Goods Section
Artichoke Antipasto
Artichoke Hearts (packed in water, not oil)
Garlic Salt
Lemony Pepper Pappardella Pasta

Frozen Food Section
Frozen Pre-Cooked Shrimp


Boil salted water for the pasta while you prep the sauce.

Throw the whole backed of sliced mushrooms in a pan with olive oil. Throw in a bunch of garlic salt. Drain the artichoke hearts and squish in your hand to break them up into the pan. Add about 2/3 of the jar of Artichoke Antipasto. Add zest AND juice of one lemon. Sautee.

When water boiling, add pasta. When it's almost done, add the shrimp to the sauce and sautee. Chop about 1/2 the package of fresh chives.

Toss it all together and you have a refreshing light summer pasta ready to go for at least four hungry people.

I made a quick salad of arugula, toasted almonds, grated fresh parmesan, lemon and olive oil on the side, which went really well with the pasta... fresh, fresh, fresh, and I made it while the water boiled as well.

Buon appetito!
