Shrimp with Broccoli and Sesame Noodles

This…was yummmmmmy.   I found this recipe at Allrecipes, then tweaked it to suit our tastes.  The shrimp and broccoli seemed so lonely that I decided to fix Sesame Noodles (also from Allrecipes) to accompany it.  So quick, easy and tasty!  Although, next time I will definitely use more ginger cause I love ginger and I couldn’t taste it too well!  Will definitely make again!
