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

My son Sean is coming home for a few days to visit and I know what I’ll be making him Rachelle! He is going to LOVE this dish!
Welcome home, Sean! I hope he love it! 🙂

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
Booze is always the answer, Chey! 🙂 Easy-peasy-boozy only makes things better!

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!

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!
Oh yes…shrimp and pasta. Such pretty words…such pretty food. I love everything about this meal – especially the addition of vino! Oh yeahhhh…
Vino = happiness! Thanks, Annie!
I love seafood and wine. Add in the Chardonnay and how can I say no? Yum.
Who could say no to chardonnay? 🙂
Vineetha @ Mint and Mimosas
I love seafood pasta dishes and garlic + white wine is the perfect pairing for shrimp and pasta. This dish sounds so warm, comforting and delicious!
Thanks, Vineetha! I love me some seafood and garlic too! Wine always makes everything better! 🙂
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop
I love the simplicity of this dish….and all the flavors! Garlic…wine…pasta….shrimp! Yum!!! Great tip on steaming broccoli. Will definitely do that from now on!
Keri @ Fashionable Foods
There is nothing better and easier than shrimp and pasta! White wine and garlic tossed with pasta and shrimp? Yes please!
Thao @ In Good Flavor
Shrimp and pasta always makes me swoon. I am always ready for it. This is a wonderful quick and easy weekday dish, Rachelle!
Jess @ Flying on Jess Fuel
Oh, this looks so delicious! I love simple, easy pasta dishes! And you can’t go wrong when cooking with wine. 😉
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!
