Old Bay Shrimp pasta is a really easy recipe to make, and it takes around 15 minutes from start to finish!

I love easy meals like this. Because I develop recipes by day, I’ve started to look for ease.

Then, I thought to myself – why haven’t I shared MORE easy recipes with y’all?

Ingredients for Old Bay Shrimp Pasta

  • 12 Shrimp (8 oz of jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined)
  • 160g of Pappardelle pasta
  • 2 teaspoons of old bay seasoning
  • Juice of one whole lemon
  • 1/4 cup of heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • Salt
  • Garnish: chopped parsley

Why use pappardelle pasta?

I like Pappardelle pasta for a dish. It’s a thick, hearty, flat noodle made with eggs, semolina flour, all-purpose flour, salt, and olive oil.

Because it has a more complex macronutrient profile (carbs, fats and proteins). It seems to not spike my blood sugars as much.

People with diabetes are often told we can’t eat pasta, but I’ve found pappardelle actually works very well for me.

How to make Old Bay Shrimp Pasta

You’ll need two pans – a skillet for making your shrimp and sauce and a pot for boiling water.

Start by filling your pot with water and salting it (you want it to be murky like sea salt).

Put it on your stove, on high and bring it to a rolling boil.

While that comes up to a boil, prep your shrimp, by peeling and deveining them.

Next add butter, lemon juice, old bay seasoning, and garlic to your pan, letting it simmer on medium-high heat.

Next add your cream, and let it simmer a little longer.

Check your water, if it’s boiling, you’ll want to drop in your pasta and cook according to the package directions.

When your pasta is almost done cooking, drop your shrimp into the old bay lemon butter sauce.

Cook your shrimp through (2-3 minutes on each side).

Then, drop your pasta in with the lemon butter pasta sauce and shrimp, and give it a toss.

Sprinkle with parsley and serve!
