Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Sand

First, my dad is home and doing better. He just has to follow the doctor's orders!

We did eat dinner this week, just not homemade stuff. Tuesday we had take out from Zhang's, always good. Wednesday I picked up a Rotisserie Chicken from Stop and Shop which had just came out of the oven! And if you bought a chicken you got free mashed potatoes! Thursday night we went to Lowrie's Grill and Pub. I had a lobster roll that was perfect.
And that brings us to tonight's dinner. Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Sand. The Sand is toasted bread crumbs. I was looking for the recipe for Pasta with Peppers and Sand and found this one. The last time I made it I used Orrechiatta pasta. 

Ingredients - 
1 lb. Angel Hair pasta
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

4 tbsp. olive oil, divided

1 lb. shrimp, cleaned and deveined

2 tbsp. fresh chopped parsley

salt and pepper to taste

Directions -

Prepare pasta according to package directions.

Meanwhile heat 2 tbsp. olive oil until hot and add bread crumbs and crushed red pepper. Saute until bread crumbs are lightly browned. Remove from pan. In same pan heat 2 tbsp. olive oil until hot. Add shrimp and saute until cooked. Add parsley and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the breadcrumbs to shrimp mixture.

Drain pasta and mix with 2 tbsp. butter. Add shrimp mixture to the pasta. and serve.

Also grabbed some seafood cakes that I had in the freezer, I didn't have lunch so I was pretty hungry. 

It was nice to have a home cooked meal.
