Shrimp Scampi

Pasta and Shrimp are two of my favorite foods. Shrimp Scampi makes for a perfect easy dinner in our household. Kynsley loves pasta so this is one dinner  I don’t have to worry about her not eating (she is a very picky eater). I cut this recipe in half since there are only 2 real eaters in the household but I am posting the full for you larger families. Hope you enjoy 🙂
