Sometimes the best things in life are the simplest. Like this One Pan Garlic Parmesan Shrimp & Spaghetti recipe yes, I said ONE pan. I get a lot of questions about my one pan recipes “are you sure it only takes one pan?” “how does all that cook in one pan”. Yes, it will all cook in one pan!
I don’t know about you, but oftentimes I want to make something simple AND delicious. Back in college, simple was anything I could microwave. Well, times have changed I’m 5 years removed from college and my body doesn’t appreciate that stuff anymore!
Shrimp are so easy to cook with, you can season them with almost anything and they cook quickly another reason I love seafood!
This One Pan Garlic Parmesan Shrimp and Spaghetti recipe also makes a great meal prep lunch for the week. Throw in a veggie, like tomatoes and have yourself a shrimp tomato pasta.
You can play around with different proteins, too. Try making a one pot pasta and chicken by swapping the shrimp for some cubed chicken breast!
