Italian Shrimp and Pasta Recipe

Italian Shrimp and Pasta Recipe

We like pasta with Italian tomato sauces, and this recipe is one we make often. It’s heavy on the shrimp and light on the pasta, and that’s the way we like it…we can remember when shrimp was unheard of in our budget, so I guess we’re making up for it now!
