Shrimp Scampi a la Bevy

I've never been known as a "foodie", nor have I ever had people rave about my cooking. Oh, I'm pretty decent in the kitchen, but I'm no Martha, Paula, or Julia. (Maybe it has to do with that "a" at the end of their names...) So imagine my surprise when my picky eater boys complimented me on my version of an online recipe. Of course I didn't have all the right ingredients, so I improvised. Which is what I do with most recipes!

So here's Shrimp Scampi a la Bevy

* 1 1/2 pounds of medium or large shrimp, peeled, deveined, etc.
* Spaghetti (or angel hair pasta)
* Coat the pan with extra virgin olive oil. (They said 8 tsp of butter, but I love extra virgin)
* Heat on medium high
* Toss in:
3 cloves of diced garlic
Numerous shakes of Old Town Geek seasoning
Zest of one lemon
1/4 cup (?) of lemon juice
Fresh parsley
* Stir until bubbly
* Toss in shrimp and cook until white
* Pour shrimp over cooked pasta
* Pour glass of white wine for you and the hubby and lemonade for the kiddos...



  1. Thank you for posting this!!! xoxoxo

  2. yum! Love Scampi of any variation.

  3. That looks delicious - wish that were on my menu tonight. Alas, parent-teacher-student conferences are on the agenda, so no meal-time planning. BTW, sorry for the UK/SC gloating - it's been a long-timing coming for us, though. Never beaten Spurrier, before. Good luck with the upcoming games! :)

  4. Looks fabulous, Beverly!! I think even my college son could make it and he is always looking for something easy to cook! We will have to test it out this weekend!

  5. Sounds wonderful ~ this is one of my favorite meals.

    Hope all is well with you and your family. It's been crazy busy here. I'm treading water at a very fast pace :)


  6. Sounds divine! Note to self: MUST make.


Thanks for your sweet comments... They make my day just that more Golden!
