Hi friends!  Thank goodness we’re on the homestretch to the weekend!  Woo-hoo!   I don’t know about y’all, but I’m so ready.  Even though this was a short week it was still too long. 🙂




So we’re keeping things short and easy and continuing our theme of easy weeknight meals.  It doesn’t get much easier than shrimp and pasta!




We usually have this dish a few times a month because it’s so easy.  Throw in a salad or a vegetable and you’re good to go!  Actually, sometimes I just toss some fresh broccoli into a colander and pour the hot water – pasta and all – over it.  It steams up just perfect and you have a complete meal!




Who doesn’t love an easy weeknight meal that can be put together with little effort?  Sometimes we plan and sometimes I just send Chris a text asking what he wants to have for dinner.  I have to admit that it’s much easier when we have planned ahead!  Sooooo……

I want to remind you about my friend Raquel’s Guide to Meal Planning.  Raquel is a blogger from My California Roots and she wrote an ebook Guide to Meal Planning.  She gave me a copy to review (and I’m totally going to put it to good use) and I’m super excited about it.

The guide includes:

  • Templates for meal planning
  • Recipe Keeper Spreadsheet (which is awesome and helpful!)
  • Meal Planning Toolkit
  • A mini book on tips for creating the best meal plans ever
  • Extra goodies!

The guide is just released this week and is only available until Friday.  I honestly love this Guide to Meal Planning and would totally recommend it even if it wasn’t published by my friend!  I am 100% confident that it will be a life-saver for anyone with a family to feed and for people who want to keep to a healthy diet – which is always easier when you have your meal plans in place so that you’re not hitting the drive-through on your way home from work because you didn’t plan.

I highly recommend you go check out Raquel’s Guide to Meal Planning.  To do that, click here: Guide to Meal Planning

  1. You had me at white wine, Rachelle! 😉 Love all the flavors you have going on here, pure simple deliciousness always hits the spot. Plus you really can’t beat something easy-peasy for weekday dinners, especially when you are terrible at planning like me! Guess I need your friends guide, huh? All I need is this dish and a loaf of crust bread. Heaven! Cheers, sweets! Xoxo

  2. Look at you getting all fancy with the white wine and garlic sauce here! Is it ok if I drink some of that wine while I’m cooking? Because that just might have to happen…especially since it’s now Thirsty Thursday! Love this recipe, Rachelle! 🙂

    • Ha! That’s me. Fancy pants for sure! It’s not only ok to drink the wine while cooking – it’s encouraged. In fact, I’ll join you! Cheers! Thanks, David!

  3. I could literally eat shrimp and pasta every day. I might weight 500 pounds but I’d be one happy camper. Cooking with wine is my jammy jam. A little in the food, a little in me, a little in the food, a little in me…
    I just went to the store yesterday and have a pound of shrimp in the refrig so I think I’ll be making your yummy recipe tonight!

    • OMG! We are so on the same page, girl! Cooking with wine and a bit of sampling for me is totally my jammy jam too! I hope you love the shrimp! 🙂 Cheers!

  4. It sounds so easy and who wouldn’t love such an easy and luscious dish. I also like the idea with the broccoli. It always tastes better when you make it though. Just sayin.

    • 🙂 Everything tastes better when someone else makes it! Bring me some baked steak and mashed potatoes!
