Dinner Party Worthy – Shrimp Pasta!
This dish from How Sweet It Is is a winner in our book.
It pulls together very quickly and has so much flavor — your guests will be impressed.
A little admission here — I have a difficult time holding a conversation while I’m cooking. So I get a little flustered when my dinner guests follow me into the kitchen because I just can’t multitask like that.
But I may have found a solution! This pasta dish is so easy. Everything is prepped ahead of time.
All you need to do is toss it all into a skillet and cook until the shrimp is done.
Minimal thinking required!
You gotta try this and let me know how it goes for you! I do believe a dinner party is on the horizon for us….
