White Beans and Shrimp

IMG_0802

This is one of those recipes that was the result of a hot, lazy day with slim pickings in the fridge.  That seven o’clock belly grumble caused me to be a bit creative in the kitchen with some kick ass results.  I always keep a bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer and canned white beans in my pantry for quick proteins, add those with my trusty parmesan cheese and some other random ingredients I luckily had on hand for a dinner that is perfect as a leftover a beach lunch.  (If you even have any leftovers)
