What's for dinner?

Spring Pasta with Shrimp
Serves 2

2 cups short pasta, today it was fusilli
1/4+ pound shrimp, at least 5 pieces per person
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 - 3/4 cup peas

Cook pasta according to directions. Meanwhile, heat either 1 t. EVOO or a few seconds of spray  oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Cook onions with a little salt until they soften and sweat, this will help develop a little bit of a sauce. Add the shrimp, peas, & garlic & cook until the shrimp have curled & just turned pink. Drain the pasta & stir it in with the shrimp. Serve with a little grated Parmesan on top!

After dinner, I watching a little Ciao Italia on PBS & Mary Ann mentioned that she never serves cheese on top of seafood. I hadn't heard that before. What do you think? 

If it tastes good, why have rules? Dinner was pretty tasty (and filling!) to me, you'll have to try out the recipe for your self and let me know how it tastes to you!

Nickki's grand opening at Firefly yesterday was a pile of fun! She's done a fantastic job with the studio & so many people are looking forward to classes this week. Nickki managed to snag a great picture of the breezybyhand stretch headbands available at the studio. Way to be, girl, taking fantastic photos while hosting your own grand opening! So proud of you, Nic!
