Lemon & Shrimp Fettuccine

There are certain ingredients we always have on hand and for Diva #2 that’s pasta! Especially Barilla pasta, and she usually has lemons and shrimp too. This is a simple dish to put together, but think of this recipe as a base, you should adjust the garlic, chili peppers, lemon, etc to your taste.  Diva #2 made it for Ranger and he’s already asking her to make it again!  Pair it with the Turbulence Ranch Cellar 2013 from California, and your meal is complete. We like this wine because it has a fruity aroma that adds a freshness to any dish. It has notes of citrus which is perfect for this Lemon & Shrimp Fettuccine!

We’re obsessed with garlic, it adds so much flavour and it’s also REALLY good for you, click HERE for an interesting read on the 14 Science-Backed Health Benefits of Garlic. We love it when things taste good but are also good for you, to be honest we usually add a little more garlic that this recipe asks for 😉
