good eats: lemon basil pasta with shrimp recipe

food and drink

September 16, 2021


It may be morning, but I am already ready for leftovers from last night’s dinner! Wednesdays officially bring me back to the land of carbs, therefore I usually go big and say yes to all the pasta #sorrynotsorry.

However, I know it’s been a bit since I served up something fresh from the food diaries and I found this delicious pasta online and knew it was something I had to make ASAP. I love that it’s easy to assemble, great for weeknights when everyone is busy but still want something homecooked and this can be served hot OR cold as well.

Plus, I might have just stocked up on these ADORABLE new place settings from Walmart so it was an excuse to actually set the table and put these new polka dot pretties to good use! Plus, you can grab these in a handful of prints and patterns and 12 pieces/4 place settings are under $50 = fantastic fall find for your kitchen and dining.
