Shrimp Pasta Florentine



When I saw one of the ingredients was diced tomatoes, a thousand things went through my head. Salsa, pasta, egg casserole…you know the usual suspects. Well salsa was taken care of last week and egg casserole, well you’ll just have to wait and see but pasta – everyone loves pasta!

As hot as it is here in central Texas, I wanted something light but full of flavor. So I added some Butter, Ya’ll (in my best Paula Deen voice!) This dish is crazy simple, fast and perfect for a dinner party or casual lunch.

    I like how light and easy this is. A great summer recipe. I wonder if it would work as one of those one pot wonder dishes if you added the shrimp right at the end? Have you seen those? Thanks for sharing at What’d You Do This Weekend. I love your new logo. I see you are back to Chicago again this week via Facebook. I was just watching a show that said Chicago has a newly developed BBQ phenomenon going on. Maybe you’ll get a chance to check that out.
