I’m trying to do a better job of sharing the recipes we eat at our house during the week.

With 7 people it sometimes gets really creative… but a lot of times I make a dinner that works like last night’s Shrimp Linguini. It only took 15 minutes to make (but in my house took 2 hours because of all the constant interruptions) and was absolutely delicious.

So, in an effort to try to share 2 recipes a week here is this absolutely phenomenal creamy shrimp pasta that could be added to your dinner rotation.
