Whatcha Got Cooking Wednesday? Greek Shrimp Scampi Recipe Link-up

WGCW

Shrimp is one of our favorites! It is so easy to prepare and as I have been craving a particular Shrimp Pasta dish that is a little time consuming and really high in calories. SO, I thought I would introduce you to it’s younger & skinnier version!! This is a super quick and easy dish that would be perfect for the inaugural WGCW! It works wonderfully for a quick dinner or is elegant enough to do for a dinner party. It doubles great. I hope you all enjoy!!

    I should’ve read this sooner, I’d have come to your house for dinner. I just had a bowl of SHredded Wheat for dinner.

    This looks MUCH better than cereal!
