Garlic Shrimp With Basil, Tomatoes, And Pepper Flakes from Serious Eats

Verdict: Meh

This fail has nothing to do with the recipe, and everything to do with me. Strike one: bought pre-cooked shrimp. Strike two: didn't use fresh basil. Strike three: just kind of winged it...which in some cases can work, but this time it didn't. The whole dish wasn't bad, per se, but I didn't care for it. I served linguine instead of orzo with the dish, which may be another strike, because DY says I suck at cooking pasta (okay, he didn't say that, but it was implied). I did, however, absolutely love the little cooked grape tomatoes. Grape tomatoes may be my favorite kind of tomatoes ever.
