I was surprised to discover I had never shared this recipe here before as it is an old favorite. The preparation time is short, and the dish smells SO good as it's cooking (hard to go wrong with tomatoes and garlic). The original version in Cooking Light was not served with pasta, but I think the noodles and scampi are a delicious combination.

Will with Dots and Robert just before leaving for Fort Worth
Will headed off for his sophomore year at TCU last month. Sending him off this year was much easier emotionally and preparation-wise than last! In fact, after a summer of murky curfews and disagreements over the best uses of his leisure time, I can't say I was sorry for school to start back!
Tucker says goodbye
Dots and I followed in my car to help transport Will's clothes
It took us several trips to haul in all of his stuff. Will is living in his fraternity house this year, which at TCU is a designated dorm
"Will, can I take a picture of you in your room?"
Mom made a run to the Kroger's to stock up on nutritious (ha) boy food
Will seems to be enjoying his sophomore year. There's definitely a greater comfort level knowing how things work and where everything is on campus and already having a circle of friends.
Robert and I are heading to Fort Worth on Friday for TCU Family Weekend. I'm looking forward to that! I'll see if I can sneak a picture or two of the room this time. Go, Frogs!
Married for 27 years to Robert, three kids: Will (23), Vivian (20) and Dots (17) ~~~~

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
