    Delicious and easy. DH loves pasta and loves shrimp, so definitely loved this (so did I). Only change I made was to sub canned diced tomatoes for the romas. Expect to serve often. Glad you posted this.

    Very easy and VERY good. DH said 4 stars because he liked more salt. I said 5 stars because it was flavorful as was. Thank you MA. Gloria


Hello Everyone After a couple of years of using many, many recipes off this wonderful web-site, I finally decided to sign on. I am a retired widow living in the St. Petersburg area of Florida. I grew up in Minnesota and lived 30 years in the Boston area before moving to Florida 17 years ago. I was a commercial real estate broker. After my husband passed away I switched gears and became a cruise agent (it was a tough job, but somebody has to do it-LOL). I really enjoyed the traveling and meeting many new people. I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren and I am very fortunate that they live in this area and I get to see them often. My favorite pastimes are reading, walking (usually with my dog), and cooking. My pet peeve is crabby people!
