  1. EFL Shrimp Scampi

    Shrimp Scampi is a favorite item on many seafood restaurant menus and certainly is for my husband Rick and me.  Using this recipe, we enjoy the dish frequently at home in a healthy yet flavorful way.  It is a quick, easy recipe which we can make together as we catch up on the day after work; or one we can make for guests.  Try the recipe and add the seasoning to your personal taste, if you like, such as extra garlic, fresh Basil, and/or Parsley.   We use whole wheat angel hair pasta, add a green salad and sit down for a healthy, delicious, aromatic treat.  So head to the grocery store; purchase the ingredients you might need; and Enjoy!!
