Last week I participated in Presto Pasta Nights. I really love pasta. That may seem like a strange statement to some of my friends who knew me before. In my past. Like previous to 2005. I wouldn’t make spaghetti for Grumpy. He used to complain that I didn’t make it. Then something happened. I tried this dish for Shrimp with Penne and Squash. I fell in love with pasta that wasn’t spaghetti. Then, I found out that spaghetti wasn’t all that bad when you mixed up the sauce recipe and made it different than just pasta sauce and burger.
Since I now enjoy pasta so much and since I found out there is Presto Pasta Nights, well, how can I not participate!! It is good to have pasta at least once a week! 😀 This week’s event is being hosted by Sara of I’m a Food Blog. Make sure you check her blog out on Friday for the roundup!
If you like Cooking Light and you like shrimp, then you really must try this dish. I made this for the first time on New Year’s Eve for Grumpy and myself. It was so good that as soon as I knew I was making pasta for this week’s event, I knew this was the recipe I would share! Enjoy!
