One of the things that everyone talks about is needing a quick and easy meal to make and that is what this easy shrimp scampi with angel pasta does! It takes around 30 minutes to make this recipe and has only 12 ingredients! Unlike a lot of other shrimp scampi recipes, this easy recipe does not start with having to cook down onions or other vegetables, which saves a lot of time!

As I’m sure you know, I love to cook down onions, bell peppers, and celery in my meals to give it flavor, but sometimes you are in a rush and want a meal in under 30 minutes!

I love going to restaurants and getting shrimp scampi. Particularly popular restaurants for a delicious shrimp scampi meal is Olive Garden and Red Lobster! In fact, Olive Garden’s recipe isn’t even high in calories and has asparagus in it!

Unfortunately for most people, we can’t afford to eat out at these restaurants often and this leads us to cooking at home. (I actually love cooking at home and soon you will too!)

This easy shrimp scampi recipe has tomatoes and an orange bell pepper in it to give it some color and flavor, but you can mix it up and add in other vegetables as well!

Try this 30 minute shrimp scampi recipe and let me know what you think!
