I love cooking. I love trying new recipes...sometimes they are a hit, sometimes not so much. I am also a believer in simple and easy recipes, especially on weeknights. When I find a winner that meets the above criteria, I feel like the whole world needs to know. This shrimp pasta with a tomato and basil sauce is perfection. It's a one pot meal which is amazing and you can whip it up in less than 30 minutes. Love love love it. Hope you enjoy, too!
