Garlic Cilantro Shrimp Pasta

Light and refreshing... this is how I describe this pasta dish. So what could be better than an easy tasty meal to prepare on a day off... I whipped this pasta dish in like half an hour, and we devoured it in less than 20 mn :) I guess we were a bit too hungry!
We were off Friday and Monday, a long weekend i was longing for a long time ago. Sometimes you just need this break from work and routine just to recharge your batteries and go back with full energy. It was a perfect timing as the weather was so beautiful and the sun was always there to cheer us up.
Well, enough dreaming... tomorrow back to work... :( snif snif
