I didn't have the penne pasta so just used egg noodles and it was still delicious. My husband loved it and asked me to make it again. I used the large shrimp that were already cooked.
I tried this dish but modified using my homemade pesto sauce instead of the lemon....very good! I will definitely try again and maybe follow the recipe this time - which is something I hardly ever do.
Shrimp cook up quickly and are an easy way to add more seafood to your weeknight routine—or to add a touch of style when you’re entertaining.
