This Shrimp Pasta recipe definitely falls in the comfort food category. It reminds me of summer but is just as good in the winter. Surely a plate of this pasta would brighten a gloomy winter day.
Of course, you can substitute the frozen vegetable for fresh. I used frozen for the recipe because it cuts down on prep time. If you like heat, a pinch of red pepper flake when you add the tomatoes will make you very happy.
Fettuccini, Linguini or Angel Hair can also be used in place of Spaghetti. While the recipe uses salt and pepper to season the shrimp, I use my Blackened Seasoning and you can get the recipe below.
