Should you have any doubt that kids would like a sophisticated dish like this shrimp pasta recipe with lemon butter sauce, I urge you to give it a try and see what happens. The first time I made this for the kids, there wasn't a single bite left. They actually scraped the bottom of the serving bowl, as if another shrimp or strand of spaghetti would magically appear if they looked hard enough. The bonus? This recipe takes less than half an hour to prepare. Feel free to add freshly-chopped parsley, more garlic or sun-dried tomatoes, as one reviewer suggests. Delicious!
