Garlic Red Pepper Shrimp Pasta

Skip the restaurant this week and treat yourself to a fancy home cooked comforting meal!

I had been craving pasta lately and came up with this simple and easy shrimp pasta. It’s so delicious and flavourful. It does have quite a high calorie punch but this meal kept me full for quite a while!

“Shrimps” pack a big punch of protein. They go really well in pasta dishes plus they are so delicious! I used brown rice pasta as I discovered this pasta when going gluten free for a while and it is definitely my favourite form of pasta. The red pepper not only gives it a little more health but also brings a nice colour to the dish.

Hope you enjoy this meal as much as I did!
