This is more like heaven in a bowl!!! I LUVLUVLUV pasta and shrimp together and this is more like a big MEAL than a salad!! With the mixture of shrimp, linguine, tomatoes and parmesan cheese, you'll have yourself a fabulous dinner or you can simply make it for a get together-I made it for my daughters 1st birthday and everyone LOVED it!! It was fancy enough to please the grown ups!!! This serves 12 so you can cut it in half to serve for dinner. Definitely worth trying!
