Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta

Here’s a fun way to prepare shrimp that’s also quick and easy.

The shrimp are sautéed in olive oil with finely diced red and green bell pepper, along with garlic and grated ginger, and then tossed with angel hair pasta. So festive!

It’s as if the pasta wanted in on some holiday decoration action and the bell peppers piped up to say, “hey, we can do that!”

Just like New Year’s confetti. That you eat. Made with diced bell peppers. And served with shrimp and pasta.

It’s a party on a plate that also tastes great. Simple flavors that work beautifully together.
