Spaghetti w/ Lemon Basil Shrimp

Today I really want to get out of the kitchen quickly. Have tons to get done and I want everything cleaned up by 8. Pretty Little Liars is on tonight (smiles and wide eyes)

This will be a one pot meal less than 30 minutes start to finish. I'm trying to incorporate some sort of herb and green in every meal to stay on my healthy side. Here we go Thursday's Treat! 
Spaghetti w/ Lemon Basil Shrimp

Shrimps cleaned and ready to go
2 tablespoons basil
2 tablespoons olive oil 
3 tablespoons lemon juice 
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of garlic powder (not pictured)

Boil water about quart and a half add about fistful of spaghetti a little more if you want left overs or serving is more than two. Cook for about 8 minutes. 

Add shrimps already peeled etc...depending on your serving judge the size and cook for another 4 minutes or shrimps turn a nice pink. 

Drain and place in large mixing bowl. Add Basil, Olive Oil, lemon juice and salt and garlic powder.
On your plates pour about 1/2 cup of Spinach top with Spaghetti mix...Done

You can use any pasta you like today I chose Angel hair because it was at my reach. 

You can also sprinkle some Parm cheese if you wish. enjoy

Off to pll
