Garlic Creamy Lemon Shrimp Pasta

Thursdays are my late nights during the week. My husband is an instrucor and teaches so when he comes home on Thursdays, he is super hungry! More than normal. This is usually the time when I try to cook healthy, but also cook hearty since I know I’m feeding a hungry man who is having dinner at 9:30pm. I wanted to make a quick meal but I also was craving something creamy and lemony. I decided to make a garlic, creamy lemon shrimp pasta. It was a hit! Both my husband and his mini me ate every bite on their plate, so I wanted to share this easy to make recipe with you. Enjoy! ☺️

Eggplant Lasagna Dinner

I recently promised myself to step out of my cooking comfort zone and try out a new recipe at least once a week. I haven’t been feeling well today, so I wanted to save my energy for one main dish that I have never made and keep my promise to myself. I chose an eggplant lasagna dinner dish!

I finally bought the intimidating eggplant. I am so glad I did! So tonight, I made a dish called Easy Low Carb Eggplant Lasagna from Wholesum – Yum Low Carb Recipes. I have got to say, it turned out pretty good! I will mention while I did follow the recipe for the most part, when it came time to brown the meat I added Worchester sauce. I also I used a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce instead of marinara sauce. Last, I didn’t have ricotta cheese, so I just added extra shredded cheese. Hey, you can’t go wrong with cheese, right? Lol, I also added my own spices, like rosemary and paprika and topped the dish off with some bacon bits. I always end up changing recipes a little, but I think that many of us are like that. I still give credit to this recipe. It was amazing!

Like I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t feeling well. I Continue reading
