Lemon Shrimp Pasta

Pin It

Tonight I was fortunate to have dinner with my niece Sierra and my mother.  Going to mom's is always a food adventure.  Mom is a great cook and I always learn so much from her.  Tonight she made this great shrimp pasta.  It was light and lemony!

Mom, Sierra, Karrie and Julia-Summer, 2012

Mom cooking away.........she said I had to get a side view because she didn't have on make-up!

Here are the ingredients:  

1/3 cup olive oil
2 garlic cloves, crushed and put into the olive oil
3 tablespoons minced onions
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
10-12 shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 pound cooked pasta
1/4 cup chopped parsley (fresh)

Put the crushed garlic cloves into the olive oil.  Let that infuse a few hours.  Saute the onion with a little of the olive oil.  Add the rest of the oil, sugar, salt and pepper to taste, lemon juice and shrimp.  Let that simmer 5-7 minutes or until the shrimp turns slightly pink.  

Add the parsley and cooked pasta.  Serve.

Note:  Mom says she enjoys this pasta with a jar of marinated artichoke hearts and some feta cheese.
