Sheet Pan Shrimp Scampi

I was not expecting this to be as delicious as it turned out so I was practically FORCED to eat a lot!

I will have enough for another meal too.

So easy and quick clean up too! I see more sheet pan dinners in my life.

And ya know what else? This would be great to serve for Valentine’s Day, or an anniversary. Any event that you want to celebrate, this dish is worthy.

I didn’t really measure anything so I will do my best to give you as accurate as I can guesstimate measurements! LOL

The recipe below serves 2 and you can certainly adjust the measurements to serve more. Feel free to substitute the veggies that you like. I think red bell peppers would be tastey in this recipe. Even asparagus tips.

And something else I loved about this other than the simplicity, the quick clean up. I only had the pasta pot, and the cutting board. The sheet pan was clean because I lined it with foil.

I truly do love this recipe and I hope you do too! Let me know if you make it and what you did to make it your own version or the veggies that you substituted.
