How Was the Shrimp and Garlic on Pasta?

Mighty tasty if I do say so myself and I do…heh. Plus it was quite easy to make. Cooking the pasta took longer than cooking the shrimp. It was bright, flavorful and a meal that we both really enjoyed. Leftovers will not be unwelcome on the table from this dinner!
