I came up with this recipe the other night when my wife and girls wanted Alyssa's Favorite Fish, Alyssa's Favorite Fish. I didn't feel like fish so I tried this, I think you will enjoy it. I used whole wheat spaghetti for the pasta, and regular olive oil, you could use what you like. I was hoping to have some of this left over for the next day but I ate it all that night. I put down 2-4 servings but I ate it in one. Sorry!! Be careful not to overcook the shrimp.
