A PSA and Creamy Shrimp Pasta
Don’t try and break up a dog fight or this could happen to YOU! It looks so much better than it did on Friday! I’m really wondering where all those wrinkles came from, LOL.
This is so quick and easy to make and it tastes like you have been cooking all day. It is NOT spicy at all so if you like spice, add more Cajun seasoning or even some hot sauce. I think the whole wheat pasta would taste great in this dish.
Creamy Shrimp Pasta
1 cup water
1 (14 ounce) can fat free, low sodium chicken broth
6 ounces uncooked linguine
1 lb. raw medium shrimp, pelled and deveined
1 1/2 tbsps butter
