As a little word of warning – This is a dish I like to prepare during cold and flu season. It has a little “kick” to it.  Between the red hot pepper flakes and the garlic it helps opens up the sinuses and gets everything flowing.

 


Plus, let’s not forget, garlic is suppose to have natural healing properties. It makes a wonderful meal choice for the fall and winter months.

Garlic Shrimp Pasta Ingredients:
1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
6 cloves garlic
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
Few sprinkles of red pepper flakes (it adds a kick)
Pinch paprika
Pinch of salt
¼ cup cilantro or parsley
32 strands of spaghetti noodles, which is a half cup cooked
