Shrimp Scampi – Quick and Easy

For the last couple of months I have been cooking up a storm. I am currently on a mission to serve my family more real food for less. To top it off I am also trying to make recipes that are quick and easy. Tonight I served shrimp scampi and it was a hit. The following is the recipe as stated on the All Recipes website with my own additions and substitutes at the bottom.

Hi, I'm April Momma. I am a stay-at-home mother of 2 awesome kids and like all moms I wear multiple hats. Most days I'd like to think I wear all of them well at all times but that's a joke. I get by the best I can and that's the truth. Aside from being a mother I am a wife, pretty good cook, good intermediate seamstress, musician, music lover and blogger.
