More About This Recipe
  • Pasta is my favorite go-to food; it’s versatile and both kids and adults tend to like it. The flavor and texture of noodles make it possible to prepare a number of delicious dishes. This pasta with a creamy shrimp sauce is a slightly gourmet variation of a meal my sister and I used to prepare when we were younger. We made a creamy sauce with tuna, which we added to spaghetti. This time, to give our tried-and-true recipe a special touch, I’ve swapped out tuna for shrimp, my favorite. The best thing about this dish is that you can have dinner ready in only 20 minutes.
