I can’t believe I’ve never posted the recipe for Pasta with Shrimp & Fresh Tomatoes! This has long been one of my favorite dishes to make but I often fiddle around with the recipe adding mushrooms, white wine, some kind of cheesy goodness, and I forget just how good the original recipe is. Pure and […]
