Shrimp with Garlic Pasta and Sausage

So yesterday, my fiance was kind enough to cook dinner, since I was too exhausted to be bothered. Probably better for both of our health anyway. He made this dish, which was surprisingly good. I just wish he hadn't used the shrimp I was saving for his birthday, which was today...

Shrimp with Garlic Pasta and Sausage

4 cloves garlic

1/2 box pasta

1 package raw shrimp

2 sausage links

1 teaspoon lemon zest

Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the shrimp thoroughly until well cooked.Drain the cooking water, then rinse them off (this step is for people who are allergic to shrimp's high iodine content). Shell the shrimp and set them aside.

Either pan fry or microwave the sausage till done (tastes better pan fried). Slice into small rounds and set those aside.

Follow the package instructions for the pasta and cook till al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, zest one lemon and juice it. Mince four cloves of garlic. When the pasta is done, drain it and mix it with the rest of the ingredients. Serve warm. Serves one hungry writer and her considerate mate.
