Make

  1. Bring a large stock pot (large enough to hold pasta and broccoli) of water to boil. Salt generously and add pasta. Cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccoli in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Save 1/2 cup / 120 ml (for 4 servings - adjust if customizing) of salted pasta water before draining. 

  2. While pasta is boiling, heat a saute pan (that can fit shrimp, pasta, and broccoli) over medium heat. Add half the butter. When butter is melted, add garlic and tomatoes and saute for 1 minute.

  3. Add shrimp and saute until shrimp is cooked through, ~4 minutes. Stir in remainder of the butter and pasta water.

  4. Mix in pasta, broccoli, and lemon juice. Season with some salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

Added pesto sauce to the leftover cheese tortellini from last night. Shrimp was quick and easy! Served with broccolini.

I didn't have any shrimp so I cubed up some leftover chicken and used that instead. It was delicious. I added some salt & pepper and grated parmesan.
