shrimp and broccoli pasta salad

haven’t had shrimp in a while so i was looking forward to trying this recipe.

the recipe is pretty easy. the only cooking is boiling the pasta, shrimp and broccoli. the dressing is just a few spices. after that, throw everything into a bowl and mix!

it’s such a light but filling healthy meal. it’s also a good meal to eat room temperature or cold. make a little extra to save for tomorrow’s lunch!
