Linguini in a Creamy Pea Sauce and Sautéed Shrimp
Ah, pasta, how I love thee! The possibilities are absolutely endless!! Last night I was looking for something really simple using things I had around. There are only a handful of ingredients in this one but it is really good!
I always have frozen shrimp on hand, I know you're thinking why not use fresh... so my personal opinion, the "fresh" shrimp at the grocery store is less fresh then the frozen. If you look closely at the price sign, it very often says previously frozen. So I figure since I don't know how long its been sitting defrosted, possibly touching other seafood, sitting on fish juice ice... I'd rather buy frozen and defrost in a bowl of water the day of. Of course there are certain stores, like Wegmans and Whole Foods that I'd gladly by the fresh from but neither is very close to me.
This sauce is really easy and takes very little time to make. We (including the kiddos) love peas, so this one is a winner in the house. Plus I'm lucky, both boys love shrimp too!
