This moving thing is starting to break me. I'm not kidding it is getting pretty bad. I'm stressed, tired, in pain, and covered in white pain flecks. I'm sitting here slowly dying and so instead of writing about how I think I might be loosing the feeling in my legs and I might not be able to walk anymore I'm going to share my recipe for Shrimp and Goat Cheese Pasta.
- Angel hair pasta
- 1/2 lbs of shrimp (de-veined and no shell)
- 1 lemon
- 6 oz soft goat cheese log
- 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup of halved grape or cherry tomatoes
- fresh basil (to taste) shredded
- salt and pepper (to taste)
boil the pasta to how you like it, take a cup of the water and set aside then drain.
see...the cup of pasta water
make sure you de-vein and take off all of the shell from the little shrimp
add 2 tbsp of evoo to the frying pan and heat it up
zest the shrimp with lemon while the frying pan is heating up and add salt and pepper to taste
add the shrimp into the frying pan and then squeeze the lemon onto the shrimp (if you like a little lemon then one half is good if you like a lot use both)
cook on one side for 2 mins then flip the little shrimp guys
cut the goat cheese up and then halve the tomatoes (sorry I forgot to take that picture)
dump in the shrimp
then the cheese
and the tomatoes and basil (forgot to take their photo).
pour in half of the pasta water you saved and mix it all together. You want it a little creamier pour in more of the water.
This is a very light meal so I added some pepper onto it for a little more taste. If you use a lot of pasta increase the amount of goat cheese you add in or it can taste a little bland.
Tada!!! I can cook and no one died so I put that as a win in my book.
I'm now going to go spend more time painting my place and I'll see if I can remember to take photos of that. I probably will forget since I'm being a pretty bad blogger recently. I'll get better.....I promise.
