This garlic lemon shrimp and pasta recipe is a classic that can have lots of twists and turns added in to it to make the recipe more interesting and filling, if that is what you want to do with it.

It is a great combination of protein and simple carbohydrates. If you make the garlic lemon shrimp and pasta using pasta that is made from white flour, be sure to not cook the pasta beyond the el dente stage. At the el dente stage the hot water has only just permeated through the pasta and the pasta is still quite firm to the bite. You can check by frequently checking the pasta when it comes close to being done. Check the pasta about every 15 seconds or so in the last two minutes. Check by biting a bit of the pasta in to two separate pieces, and then look at the inside to see if the water has permeated all the way through. The bite will also tell you it is ready because when you bite the pasta, a cooked bit will be just tender, but still firm, when you bite in to it.
