Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Shrimp Pasta - Our Kind of Wonderful

Sun-dried Tomato Basil Shrimp Pasta

We finally decided to adult and clean out our chest freezer the other day, and oh man, did we have a ton of food we forgot about, and a lot so old we had to toss it. Mixed in al of this was a lot of shrimp we’d bought for various meals for K but never used. So, this month he’s been shrimp spoiled, and loving it. A too, she’s loves seafood which I am sooo happy about. Really trying to have her eat more like K, and not be picky like me. We whipped up this pasta dish for them, and they both devoured it in record time. It’s one you want to have everything on hand for as it’s fast enough to be a great last minute meal.
