If I make shrimp scampi over pasta as my main course, do I need to serve a veggie alongside? I was thinking maybe a side salad or a 1st course salad or ?. And I want to serve it in these pretty pasta bowls so there isn't really a plate to put the veggie on the side. But then I worry that the meal will look too pale. Do I need some baby broccoli or ??? on a separate dish?
I have this problem with fettucini alfredo too or pasta carbonara.
