I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Tuscan Shrimp Spaghettini

Quick and delicious... you can have supper on the table in 15 minutes! 
While this recipe calls for sundried tomato and basil spaghettini it would work with any pasta you like... whole wheat, spinach or maybe even zucchini noodles. But I've gotta say these noodles were really tasty!
1 - 375 g pkg sundried tomato and basil spaghettini 
1/3 cup olive oil, divided
1 - 400 g pkg peeled large shrimp
4 minced garlic cloves
1/2 tsp each salt and pepper
1 lemon, zested and juiced
2 tbsps torn lemon basil leaves
1 sundried tomato, slivered

I picked up this pasta and thought it might be good with an alfredo sauce, then I saw the recipe on the back of the package and had to try it. 

Cook the spaghettini according to package directions, drain well.
Then heat 2 tbsps oil in a large skillet on medium high heat. Cook shrimp with garlic, sundried tomatoes, salt and pepper for about 3 minutes.
Toss the spaghettini with the remaining olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and basil, plate and top with shrimp.
Serves 4
