Valentine’s Linguini Shrimp Scampi with Ultimate Bread Dipping

To be honest, I am not a fan of Valentine’s Day. I love romance, but I do not care for the cliché. However, because I know many of you are totally into this celebration – I think that this recipe is a good way to share the love of Valentine’s Day (something that should also be done year-round). With Valentine’s Linguini, you have the change to impress your significant other without having to go to an overcrowded restaurant. Win!

I love to cook, so most of these ingredients will always be in my kitchen. If you do not have a lot of time – but want to look like you took the time to create a beautiful Valentine’s dinner – then is a good recipe for you.  It is quick, easy, and most of all delicious. You cannot deny the value of cooking for someone special over going to a restaurant, no matter how fancy this could be, a surprise homemade dinner will always win the day.

By the way if you are not into sea food, then you can skip the shrimp.  But seriously, why would someone remove shrimp?  except for a food allergy, do not skip the shrimp!

This dish is best shared with the love of your life. Enjoy! J
