A note about serious food allergies

The combination of pasta and shrimp has never steered us wrong, either in terms of easy-to-make or the incredibly delicious results. This dish is no different; a classic combination of garlic and herbs pair in a sauce with the juicy pomodoros. (That's Italian for tomato, in case you haven't guessed.) Served with a garlic Parmesan bread and those succulent little crustaceans, this is a meal that will both fit and fill your highest expectations.

    Make the Garlic Bread

    Boil the Pasta

    Place pasta into boiling water and cook until al dente, 7-10 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup pasta water. Drain pasta in a colander and rinse briefly to prevent pasta from sticking. Set aside. While pasta boils, cook shrimp.
