This is a simple pasta dish that’s flavorful and filling. This dish is ready in just 20 minutes!

It’s time to get cozy in your sweatpants and cook up some comfort food. It’s 80 degrees F in Southern California, but I’m still wearing flip-flops and shorts.

The entire dish can be prepared in 20 minutes. You only need to boil some pasta and then saute the shrimp in a garlic butter herb sauce. When the pasta is ready, add some fresh greens and your pasta. That’s it. This is easy, quick, and comforting for any weather.
