Dinner will be ready in less than 30 minutes with this flavorful spicy shrimp and garlicky Parmesan quinoa
As an Italian, I believe you can never have too much garlic or cheese. The cheesy quinoa in this dish is amazing on its own. I could eat a big bowl just like that. It balances out the spicy shrimp perfectly! I’m not a fan of a lot of heat, but my husband is, so this recipe was made with him in mind!
