file under: husband’s favorites.

Last night, I happened upon a recipe that received immediate approval and jubilation from the mister.  I can only take credit for half of the recipe, but half is fine with me, as long as I’m sharing with good ole’ PW.  Honestly, the Pioneer Woman has yet to share a recipe that we do not like.  It’s a bit ridiculous, and by ridiculous, I mean awesome.
If you like a little spice to your dinner and you’re a shrimp lover, take note.  We like the shrimp around here, very much.  Also, we’re big on the spice, especially with operation: have this baby underway.  I didn’t take a picture, because I never do… please forgive me.
We’ll call this:  Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp… Pasta.

  1. Follow this recipe to prepare the shrimp.  Except,  I only used 1 lb. of shrimp and cut the rest of the ingredients in half. I added one whole sliced onion and three sliced bell peppers, one of each color (use whatever colors you have or prefer).  Add the onions and peppers to the pan and cook with the shrimp.  The flavor in this dish is out of this world.  Feel free to add hot sauce, if you’re into that.  I am.
  2. Boil some water, make some pasta… whatever you prefer, this part is pretty easy, right?
  3. Pour contents of shrimp, veggies and all that delicious garlic butter into a dish.  Toss with the pasta.
  4. Eat.
  5. The End.
We served it with garlic bread and you can never go wrong with that.  Enjoy.
That Pioneer Woman hasn’t failed us yet.


  1. It is ridiculous how awesome PW is, and how she never steers a person wrong food-wise. I have her new book preordered, I can't wait to get it!

  2. mmmmmmmmm. can't even wait to try this! it seriously looks divine!

  3. I LOVE this idea! Making it tonight! Sounds great! Thanks love!
