Wild Shrimp & Improper Pasta
According to Psychology Today, a common misconception many of us hold is that marriage makes people happy. Sure, our happiness increases around the time of the wedding, but after that our satisfaction or dissatisfaction with life returns to roughly the same level it was prior to the nuptials. I find this a joyous revelation because it means whether or not any of us are happy is decidedly within our control. So, no matter your couple status enjoy today by celebrating yourself, Galentine’s Day, whomever (as long as you have their consent) or whatever makes you happy (as long as no one else is violated in the process). The Wild Shrimp & Improper Pasta makes me happy.
Apparently, shrimp is an aphrodisiac so make this simple, satisfying Wild Shrimp & Improper Pasta then luxuriate. Wild Caught Shrimp is the equivalent to organic in the seafood sector. You don’t need additional pesticides, so always opt for the good stuff – you deserve it! The pasta is improper in that I always break the spaghetti in half because I can’t stand to fight with my food especially on a holiday paying homage to love; also the spaghetti is made with corn and quinoa, making it gluten-free and fabulous. If you need a dessert to complete the meal Cheesecake Elegante is a beautiful choice.

- 10 Large Wild Caught Shrimp
- 2 cloves minced organic Garlic
- 1 Cup finely chopped Broccolini

Boil pasta in salted water per instructions on box. Drain pasta and set aside. Place olive oil and garlic on medium heat in a large frying pan. Add broccolini, mushrooms, salt, oregano and fennel.

Add the cheese, basil and pepper if desired. Serves 2 to 4 people. Happy day!

Hi Robin! I break my spaghetti in half too! So much easier. This shrimp pasta was delicious. I made it for my partner and we both loved it
Right? Glad to know I’m not alone.
I love this so much, not just the shrimp and improper pasta, but the message behind it. Marriage does not a life of happiness always make. This recipe? Yes.
Happiness comes from within – thanks!

Hahaha, you don’t have to break it Camille – the taste will be the same. I’m just too lazy to fight with my food especially when I’m hungry.
This was such a great recipe I loved the addition of the cremini mushrooms and the dry white wine brought this recipe up a few notches!
