Spicy Shrimp and Spaghetti Ay Oy

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by Jenn McGowan

I LOVE this meal. I use the frozen, peeled and cleaned shrimp. It makes this go a lot faster. I usually make this when I'm really hungry because it takes almost no time. Once the spaghetti and shimp are cooked, you're eating in five minutes.

This was good and is a great meal when you're looking for something fast. I love the idea of cooking the shrimp with the pasta. I think we would have liked it better if I had played around with the amount of spices and lemon a little more.
