Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

I made this the other day when no one was home but IT Guy and me...which doesn't happen very often these days.  I was in the mood for some seafood but I knew IT Guy wouldn't even come near it so it was leftovers for him! I whipped up his food real quick so I could fix mine and relish every bite! And I did, too! What made it taste even better was that I scored a great deal on the shrimp. And the smell of that garlic cooking in the pan must have lingered because when one of my kids walked in the door...his nose went in the air and asked if there was any more of whatever he was smelling. Sadly...for him..there was none. I ate it ALL and didn't feel one bit guilty, either!

Roasted Garlic Shrimp with Pasta

8 ounces angel hair pasta – cooked and drained

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic – minced
½ pound Shrimp – peeled, deveined
Cayenne pepper - optional but recommended

Cook pasta. Drain and set aside.

Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add olive oil and butter. Add minced garlic and sauté until garlic is lightly browned. Add shrimp, salt, pepper and cayenne. Cook until shrimp is done. Add pasta to skillet and combine well. Divide onto two plates.

Serves 2

Here's ALMOST everything. 
Apparently I was so excited to 
make this that I forgot to show 
the butter and cayenne pepper. 
But I DID use it!

See? Here's the butter swimming 
with the olive oil.

Throw in your minced garlic 
and let that cook a bit.

Toss on your cleaned shrimp.

Cook until the shrimp are done. 
This will only take a few minutes.

Throw in your cooked and drained pasta!!
