Table Talk: Simple Shrimp Primavera

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 399


2 teaspoons salt
1 bag frozen mixed vegetables (I suggest a broccoli blend, perhaps one with mushroom, carrots, onions, and red pepper. Another option is a blend with asparagus. Try looking in the stir fry section of the frozen vegetables).
8 ounces thin spaghetti noodles or linguine
1 (10-ounce) package frozen cooked, cleaned shrimp, thawed
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil


In a large sauce pan, boil water and add salt. Add bag of vegetables and 8 ounces of spaghetti noodles to cook. Boil for 5 minutes or when pasta is tender. Stir often to prevent pasta from sticking. Drain. Immediately place pasta and vegetable mixture, and stir in remaining ingredients. Toss well and serve. Add crushed red pepper flakes to spice this up, if desired. Substitute cooked, cubed chicken for the shrimp if desired.


To make the meal extra special, add a side salad, a fancy beverage, or even just iced water with lemon slices. Toasted or grilled bread, especially a crusty bread can also bump up this meal. No matter what vegetable or meat choice you use, having an elegant, healthy, and bright colored meal will help your special someones feel very cared about! Another great thing about this meal, is that you can have it on your beloved's table in about 15 minutes! I wish I lived closer to my mama so I could do something extra special for her, but instead I would like to use my foodie writing position to say, I love you mama!
