Ginger Lime Shrimp & Noodles

I haven't posted in a while but that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking. I've got 4 new recipes to post! Let's start with the first one I got from Jessica's site

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 tablespoon lime zest
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce

1lb shrimp
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 clove garlic
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 tablespoons peanuts, crushed
1/2 pound whole wheat pasta of your choice (I used Chinese rice noodles)
salt and pepper to taste

Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Add to a ziplock bag, along with the shrimp and marinate for 2 hours.

Heat pan on medium heat and add olive oil. Add peppers and mushrooms to the pan and saute until soft, about 6-8 minutes. Cook pasta according to directions. Add garlic to the peppers and mushrooms and stir for 30 seconds. Add shrimp to pan and cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes. Add snap peas and pasta, thoroughly stirring until everything is mixed. Season with salt and pepper if desire and serve.

This dish came out delicious. Brad had been sick of shrimp & raved about this dish. We had no leftovers!
