Meyer Lemon Shrimp Pasta


Miss F is obsessed with shrimp, she can nearly devour an entire pound on her own. Whenever C isn't home for dinner, she usually requests that I make shrimp. I had originally planned to bake shrimp with lemon and have green beans on the side, but when I picked her up from dance class, she requested pasta. Luckily I had a package of spaghetti on hand, so Meyer Lemon Shrimp Pasta was born. This meal comes together incredibly quickly, I picked Miss F up at 5 pm from dance class and by 5:30 pm we were seated at the table having dinner. This was entirely possible because of Fasta Pasta and such an easy sauce.
Meyer Lemon Shrimp Pasta

12 ounces thin spaghetti
1 tablespoon butter
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
½ pound green beans, chopped
¾ cup cream
¼ cup chicken broth
Juice from ½ a Meyer lemon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

Prepare the spaghetti per package instructions, drain and set aside.

While the spaghetti is cooking, heat the butter over medium-high heat in a skillet. Add the shrimp and green beans, sauté for 5 to 7 minutes, turning the shrimp half way through the cooking time and stirring the green beans. In a two cup measure, stir together the cream, broth, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Pour over the shrimp and toss well to coat completely. Bring to a simmer and reduce the heat to low, simmering for 1 to 2 minutes more. Add the spaghetti and toss with the sauce, shrimp and green beans. Serve.
