Around the holidays I know in some Italian families it is traditional to have some sort of dish that includes fish or shrimp or salmon. We normally do a salmon pasta on New Years Eve but I was having a hard time finding the right kind of salmon for that dish, so I thought to myself “why not shrimp?”

This is one of those meals that you can throw together super fast but it seems like a high class type of dish. It includes garlic shrimp, a white béchamel sauce with nutmeg and of course spaghetti! You can pretty much get all of the other ingredients prepared while your pasta water is coming to a boil and while the pasta is cooking as well. ENJOY!
