Parmesan Shrimp Penne




We needed another quick dinner, but I had ingredients this time!



You need:

  • A bag of med/large sized shrimp 15-20 ish, peeled.
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, the good stuff!
  • 2 tbsp finely minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp finely minced lemon rind
  • 1 packet of penne, your brand, your choice! 300g ish



Begin by sauteeing the clove of garlic in the butter for a bit, do not burn garlic!!



Ask your boyfriend to peel the shrimp. Realize he's doing it wrong and explain it again.




Begin cooking shrimp, don't fully cook these, just get them a little pink. We don't want no rubbery over cooked shrimp-lumps.




Remove shrimp!



Cook your pasta while you do this. More garofalo! Gosh.



Add the flour to the butter/garlic bits.



Cook the flour for about a minute to get rid of any floury taste.



Add the milk and bring to a boil! It will magically thicken! OoOooh!



Turn the heat down low and add the cheese, shrimp, lemon rind, salt, pepper, and parsley. Mix! Add to pasta, and serve!
