Recipe: Shrimp Pasta w/ Arugula Salad

I have to admit that I was tootin' my own horn during this meal. It was so fast, easy, and delicious...this is already planted in my brain for future reference.

Peeled and cooked shrimp was on sale, so I cooked some spaghetti and warmed some shrimp up in this sauce (from Clean Eating Mag) to get a great throw-together pasta:
Garlic, Oil and Herb Sauce
1/4 cup vegetable broth
1 1/2 tsp corn starch (it called for 1tsp of arrowroot, but I didn't have any)
1/8 tsp of sea salt

Whisk these three things in a bowl and set aside.

In a saucepan, combine and cook for 2 - 3 minutes:
1/4 cup of olive oil
4 cloves of garlic
1 tsp dried marjoram, oregano, and sage (or 1 tbsp of fresh of each)

Add the above broth mixture to your sauce plan and stir it until the sauce thickens slightly.  Remove from heat and whisk mixture. 

Arugula Salad
In each bowl, I put some arugula/baby spinach (combo bought from Super Store), sliced strawberries and walnuts.  For the dressing, I mixed 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar with 2 tbsp of olive oil and used as much as I wanted on each.

Done :) Pin It
