Lemon Shrimp With Pasta and Basil

READY IN: 40mins

This takes no time at all to prepare.It looks like you've cooked all day! So easy, so basic, so fragrant This works well with chicken also. I sometimes prepare this with both the chicken and the shrimp, but I make a little more sauce, and I will add a little chicken broth to the sauce.

Great recipe! Made as posted, except we added a Tbs of olive oil to the butter, and used fresh garlic and salt. The only change I would make next time, is to use raw shrimp that would marinate a few minutes in lemon before cooking, as DH said not enough lemon flavor in the shrimp. This is a great recipe for us, as I prefer to not eat meat/fish, and DH loves it, with this dish we can both be happy! Thanks for sharing a great recipe.This is a keeper and will be a regular in our house.
