Last-Minute Shrimp and Pasta Supper

School is back in session in most parts of the country, which means that busy moms' lives just got even busier!  Not only is there dinner to prepare every night, but also homework to check and practices to attend.  With such hectic schedules, eating together as a family to reconnect is more important than ever, but harder to make happen consistently.

If you're in need of a last-minute supper for tonight, check out this Lemon Basil Shrimp and Pasta dish. It's ready in just minutes and is full of simple yet satisfying flavors like fresh basil, capers, olive oil, and baby spinach.  Simply pair with your favorite bagged salad and garlic butter toast for a complete meal.
