Pasta, shrimp, wine, garlic, butter, olive oil, a sprinkling of herbs... what more could you ask for in a simple weeknight dinner?! Oh... maybe a glass of white wine 🙂

It's one of those meals that is perfect for busy weeknights, it works for guests on the weekends, or you can make it for yourself and sop up the extra delish white wine butter sauce with a piece of french bread. No judgement here 🙂

    The family loved it! We doubled all ingredients to make with 1lb of linguine. Very flavorful & perfect amount of sauce. I already had a Pinot Grigio opened which worked great! A+
