Morsels of Life - Garlic Shrimp Pasta with Tomatoes and Greens - Tomatoes and greens flavored up with garlic and onion, then cooked with shrimp for a quick, easy, and tasty garlic shrimp pasta.

Since we're trying to increase the amount of seafood we eat, I'm always on the lookout for quick and tasty eats, and of course, since it was Saturday, I also wanted to use up the various odds and ends we had around. Looking around, I saw some grape tomatoes and collard greens nearing their ends. Maybe a quick shrimp dish with pasta? Pasta's usually pretty quick. And so a dish began forming. I could cook up some onion and garlic for flavor, throw in the greens, and then tomatoes and shrimp! Quick and easy, not to mention tasty. :) You could also substitute spinach for the collard greens - just throw them in at the end. Hope you enjoy!

What's a dish you made just by "throwing stuff together?"

    1. Well, it is a "throw whatever together" meal, so maybe you have something else that would work? :) Maybe try it with some fish or chicken?
