Tips for making Creamy Lemon Garlic Shrimp Pasta!
- I like to use large shrimp for this recipe, and I leave the tails on. Not only does it add flavor while cooking but the presentation looks beautiful.
- Any dry white wine will work just fine. You can substitute for vegetable or seafood broth if you want to leave the wine out.
- Our favorite past for the recipe is thin spaghetti. Any long pasta will work just fine.
- If you are not a fan of lemon flavor then just add 2 tablespoons, you can always go back and add more if you feel it needs it.
