Lemon shrimp pasta


This was super easy. I didn’t take pictures of the process because my photographer was taking a Sunday nap.

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
4 tbsp melted butter
Zest and juice of 1 Lemon (actually I used 2 but boyfriend suggested less next time. I thought it was great so I guess if you like lemon use a lot)
1/2 cup of chopped parsley
1 head broccoli, chopped
1 bunch Swiss chard, roughly chopped
Pasta of your choice. I used spaghetti but angel hair would have been better

On a cookie sheet, lay out shrimp in a single layer and drizzle with olive oil and a tiny bit of salt. Preheat oven to 375 and bake shrimp for 8 minutes, or until pink
At the same time, put about 1/2 cup of water in a frying pan and cook the broccoli on high for about 5 minutes (or until just soft). Add the Swiss chard and parsley and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Turn off heat (or keep on low heat).
Cook spaghetti. Before draining, keep 1/2 cup of pasta water.
Mix ever
