Shrimp Marinara Spaghetti

Shrimp Marinara Spaghetti Recipe

One of our family favorites in this house is spaghetti. It’s the one dish I can get everyone to eat without complaining. But sometimes I’m just not in the mood for a meat sauce. I want a different flavor.

This dish is not only tasty, but it’s pretty healthy too! And the best part is that all of the ingredients are usually in my pantry or fridge at all times. Meaning I can have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes without having to make a special trip to the grocery store.

I used a bag of frozen cooked shrimp from Trader Joe’s instead of fresh but it worked great. And I can always keep some in the freezer so consider this an official staple meal in this household!
