Foodie Friday: Thai Basil Shrimp with Rice Noodles


Thai Basil Shrimp with Rice Noodles

Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Montana from Pretty Lil’ Mudder, Emily from Whatever Floats Your Oats, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl, Farrah from Fairyburger and Cassandra from Powered by BLING to create awesome healthy recipes each week!  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

So the goal of this week’s recipe was to make something all in one pot to keep things simple and easy peasy for those nights when things are complicated and crazy.  

Things honestly have been quite crazy at my house lately and I actually found myself making this dish yesterday in a huge rush so that I could snaps some pretty pictures of it before the sun went down.  

If you can’t tell from the photos, I really did just throw this together and it didn’t take too long to make.  I was actually in such a rush that I forgot to remove the shrimp tails but they added some color to the pictures so not all is lost 😉 Thai Basil Shrimp with Rice Noodles Thai Basil Shrimp with Rice Noodles Thai Basil Shrimp with Rice Noodles
