Pasta with shrimps are easily to prepare at home because it is not an elaborate recipe. So easy, quick to pull together, and full of flavor..
The spinach tagliatelle are good and goes well with the shrimps. It is ideal to bring color and cheer to the table. If you find spaghetti fettuccine with creamy sauce too heavy for summer meals, this is a great alternative. It’s elegant, great for a weeknight meal, and good enough for a celebratory meal with family and friends.
Highly recommended to enjoy it with a glass of white wine! 🙂

500g fresh shellfish or just shrimps
