Let’s talk pasta. Lover or hater? I’m a lover as many of you can tell by the amount of pasta recipes I share on this blog. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out! Not calling you all dumb or anything, but I’m going to go with it’s pretty obvious. After about 5 pasta recipes in a row I start to feel guilty and throw in a meat dish, but let’s face it. I love me some pasta.

Really I just love carbs. My hips do not love me for loving carbs though. My niece, who’s in junior high, is a carb-aholic. The girl is as skinny as a toothpick but she can put away the carbs. Totally jealous of her. I never was skinny, but God Bless her for being lucky!

One day when she was over at my house she started hysterically giggling and I’m like, “Uh so you going to share with me and all?” Of course between giggles and catching her breath she proceeds to tell me that at the dinner table one night she was eating garlic bread, as she grabbed her SIXTH slice of garlic bread her father looks at her and says, “What the H are you doing????” And then she erupts into giggles again. Ahhhh ya had to be there. Partly because her dad does not speak like that and partly because her giggles were infectious and pretty soon I was giggling right with her. Love that girl and her carbs!

This Garlic Shrimp Tortellini Toss is pretty much life altering. I was a little skeptical as I’m a huge lover of pasta sauce and this has a simple garlic olive oil that coats the tortellini. I’m like give me the Alfredo preferably, but I was so wrong. This is amazing. The garlic carries the pasta nicely and it ends up being a little bit “lighter”. Plus it comes together super fast for a quick weeknight meal and it tastes like you are at a restaurant!

    My son loves shrimps and I am always looking at new recipes to include shrimps in them. He would love yours.

  • Deb @Cooking on the Front Burner


    This would be a perfect week night meal for us. Looks delicious and love how quick it comes together Julie.

  • Kathi @ Deliciously Yum!


    To say that I love carbs would be an understatement. It’s almost embarrassing how much I am able to consume, especially when it comes to pasta. It’s my favorite – hands down. Needless to say, I am always on the lookout for new recipes and this version is definitely the ticket. Hope you’re staying warm and safe today!!

    • Julie Evink


      Haha I think that’s a lot of us Kathi!
