Pasta, Shrimp & Veggies-Easy, Healthy And Quick!

Looking for an easy, healthy and quick meal?
I know I am.
 Although I love to cook, there are definitely days
when I look into the cupboards and groan "What am I going to make for dinner?!"
This pasta dish is super easy and tastes great.
And, it's healthy.
Another family favorite!
I hope you enjoy it too.



Pasta With Shrimp And Veggies

1-12 oz. box pasta (I use the high fiber pasta), boil
1 lb. shrimp, saute
2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced, saute
1 onion, chopped, saute
1 cup orange peppers, sliced into strips, saute
1 cup red peppers, sliced into strips, saute
2 cups broccoli, chopped, saute
Olive oil
Fresh shaved parmesan (to taste)
Garlic powder (to taste)
Hot pepper flakes (to taste)
Kosher salt (to taste)

Wash and prep veggies. Heat oil in pan (I used a wok for this) and saute garlic on high heat. Turn down to medium high and toss in broccoli. I don't cook the broccoli long-we don't like it soft! When finished, put into large bowl and set aside. At this time boil your pasta according to the box instructions. Saute the remaining veggies-onion and peppers, on medium high, to desired consistency. Add salt, garlic powder and pepper flakes to veggies while cooking. Add veggies to bowl. Saute shrimp on medium high until pink. Add shrimp to veggies. When pasta is done, drain and add to wok along with veggies and shrimp, over medium high heat toss and add parmesan. Turn off heat when ingredients are combined and serve.

Buon Appetito!
