Lemon Butter Shrimp Pasta (Quick and Simple!)

Lemon Butter Shrimp Pasta

Ingredients:

  • 5 oz of dry pasta
  • 15 pieces of frozen cooked shrimp
  • 1/2 cup of diced crimini mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup of vegan butter
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/2 tbsp of minced garlic
  • Seasonings (to taste): sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, crushed red pepper, and basil (I used dried)

Directions:

  1. Boil pasta to al dente, drain, and set aside.
  2. In a low-heated pan, add the garlic, butter, and mushroom.
  3. Once the mushrooms are cooked, add the shrimp.
  4. Squeeze half a lemon into the pan, and add all seasonings. (I would start with 1/4 tsp of each!)
  5. Let the shrimp marinade in the sauce for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the pasta, mix, and let it sit in the lowest heat setting for 5 minutes while covered.
  7. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Enjoy while it’s warm!
