Just 15 minutes is all you need to make this Creamy Lemon Pepper Parmesan Pasta dish with your choice of langostino, shrimp or lobster! It’s super easy and seriously delicious!
Did you ever have one of those dishes that just…happened? Like you’re hungry but none of your ‘usuals’ sound good so you decide to wing it and pretty much throw stuff together and hope for the best? Sometimes they are complete and utter failures (i.e, my mulberry cheesecake that was so bad even the dog wouldn’t eat it) and then other times they are so freaking amazing that you devour it pretty much before it hits the plate. And I bet on those dishes that were truly stellar you didn’t quite write down the ingredients or amounts used so when you tried to recreate it, it wasn’t quite right. Yeah, that’s happened to me too.
But not this time! See I learned my lesson years ago. I made this one sauce recipe on the fly and it was so good we literally were scraping the jar clean. I figured “Eh, I got this, a pinch of this, a smidge of that and easy peasy. Recreated deliciousness!” WRONG! It was good but it never was the same. To this day I still can’t make it like I did that day. So now I keep a pen and notepad in the kitchen at all times. And this is a pad/pen that Mr. Fantabulous has been banned from using/touching/even looking at as those are my kitchen lifelines to recipe development.
This recipe today is thanks to my kitchen lifelines.
The backstory: I didn’t have any Sunday gravy made and honestly didn’t feel like it. I had a bag of lemons that I had to use up – see I wanted to make lemonade but I ‘butterflied’ and just never gave it a 2nd thought. And I had a few bags of cooked langostino that I bought as I really wanted to make a tortellini soup with it. Yeah…none of those recipes happened
You seriously are going to make this over and over and over!

This recipe is really pushing the limits when it comes to pizza and you know what? It TOTALLY WORKS! It’s fantastic! Actually, it’s “VANTASTIC!” I’ve partnered up with Van’s Kitchen Egg Rolls and let me tell you what, I’m in LOVE LOVE LOVE with their egg rolls! Right now when you join their Club Vantastic you can get a $1 off coupon for 2 packages (but trust me, 2 is simply not enough!). Now we’ve all had egg rolls but these… there’s something truly special about these! Their company started in 1986 when the founder emigrated from Vietnam to the US. To live out the American Dream they started a company (thank you by the way!) with pretty much one simple mantra “Honest food made the honorable way”. They truly show that simple ingredients, hard work and determination can make a dish not only delicious but successful.
So when the challenge was presented to take their egg rolls and ‘think outside of the box’ I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it – pizza. I’ve never had an egg roll pizza and when I posed the question to the TKW Family no one had ever heard of one let alone had one. Well you know me folks, I’m all about pizza-fying a dish and trust me, this is a TOTAL WINNER here!
This post is being sponsored by Daisey Fresh featuring their incredible 100% Natural & Organic fridge filters. All opinions of these ABSOLUTELY AMAZING filters are mine.
Hey TKW Family! I have a great no cook/no bake ridiculously easy recipe that honestly could not have been possible without the amazing filters from my friends at Daisey Fresh! How so do you ask? Lemme tell you! So I’ve been using these filters in my fruit and veggie drawers in my fridge for about 2 months now. First off, they are super adorable and you can’t miss seeing them in the drawers. They are neon green and so soft/flexible which is great as I don’t to worry about breaking if it I throw my head of broccoli in the drawer. And more importantly is the filter packets are 100% natural and safe! So if I rip it open by accident I don’t have to freak out or throw away my foods!
So for the longest time I was buying this big bag of baby bell peppers only the thing was we weren’t eating them fast enough. Which meant I was breaking one of my golden rules – I was wasting food as I always ended up throwing about half of them away. Sin, I know! See bell peppers (not the green ones though as I don’t like them), is a new love for me. For years I wouldn’t eat them until I discovered roasted red peppers. WHA??? Where had these things been my whole life??? And since that I was a total bell pepper convert!

Whether you’ve been in the TKW Family for years or a day you’ve quickly learned that pizza is my absolute all time favorite food in the entire world. A tie for second is anything bacon or anything seafood. Well when the amazing folks from Trident Seafoods® were looking for ways to swap out your regular burger with their Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers I jumped at the opportunity to work with them. As I get older I find myself, while still a huge beef lover, leaning more and more towards fish and chicken for my protein. What I love specifically about pollock and these Wild Alaskan Pollock Burgers is they are mild in flavor like cod and provides all the benefits of seafood. They also are extremely low in fat, calories and cholesterol. And most important they taste AMAZING!
Every now and then there’s a recipe that literally blows my mind on one – how easy it is to make and two – how incredible it tastes. These Cajun Shrimp Po’Boys are one of those recipes. Back when I created my Creole Shrimp Nachos, I honestly fell in love.. or was it lust.. maybe both *shrugs* all I know it was awesome. I went on this uber kick with not only the Creole Seasoning but also the Baja Cream Sauce. Like I NEEDED these in my life.
Plus it happened to be that shrimp was at a super low price at the time so I seriously stocked up on it. I was pushing the limits on how much shrimp one person should legally have. For me since I do not have a cholesterol issue I’m okay to eat it regularly. Though it contains a high level of cholesterol, shrimp contains both omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids important for your brain and immune system health. Shrimp are relatively low in calories — 60 calories in a 3-ounce serving — and are packed with important minerals and vitamins.
