Creamy Shrimp Pasta is full of flavor and Easy to Make
Combining shrimp with pasta gives a lovely delicate flair to the dish and is so quick to get ready. In the time that it takes to boil your spaghetti, the rest of the dish comes together in a non stick pan.
I chose Parmesan Reggiano cheese since it has so much flavor. You can use a small amount and still have lots of yummy cheesy taste.
It is perfect for a busy weeknight, but special enough for any special occasion.
