Shrimp and Feta Pasta

IMG_3441

You wouldn’t think it’s almost summer with the weather we have been having for the past few days. I’m not complaining because I’ve always liked cloudy and rainy days to break up the heat. So when the weather is a little cooler, I’m happy to change up the menu and make some comfort food (or that could be the prego in me talking) because when it’s pouring outside I want a warm meal inside. Anyways, this shrimp and feta dish is a version of an Adkin’s recipe and is supposed to be served on its own like a stew or soup. But whose crazy idea was it to cut out carbs in the first place?! Mr. Adkin, you are silly man. So since I love carbs and don’t do diets… I serve mine with pasta, which in my opinion is waaayyy better. The ingredients don’t sound all the exciting but this dish is full of flavor and protein! So on those less than sunny summer days, indulge your noodle loving side and dig in.
