With lent now in full swing, we’re always looking for delicious meals to mix up our normal Friday pizza night. And come on…who would complain about shrimp scampi to mix things up?
The thing is, although I love to cook, having three young children doesn’t make it easy to whip up a complicated shrimp scampi recipe, especially during the week. So I am always on the lookout for ways to make those complex recipes more mom-friendly.
I love shrimp and anything scampi has always been one of my favorites…I can never get enough garlic!
But when I think of scampi I envision standing by the stove, mixing in a few ingredients at a time, and keeping a careful watch so nothing cooks too quickly or burns. Enter my family and that can be a disaster! Haha!
I need easy – easy and delicious! (Hence usually pizza on Friday nights! Haha!)

As you can see in the photos, we like to serve over pasta, with broccoli on the side, and crusty bread to soak up the shrimp scampi sauce.
Putting the whole meal together is easy – at the same time I bake the shrimp, I roast the broccoli in the oven (just drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and chopped garlic) and boil the angel hair.
No part of the meal requires more than a few minutes of your attention, so you’ll be able to get a delicious meal on the table quickly while taking care of your other mom duties 🙂
