Tossed Bacon And Shrimp Pasta
I stood in front of my pantry wondering why I had so many packs of pasta then I realized I got them at 88c per pack, and pasta sauce jars at $1.20 well can’t blame me. I had to grab them while the deal was on.
Following this came the usual walk to the fridge to look, I don’t know why everyone does this when we know there’s nothing new in there. SO I decided to make something different with these items. I picked out all the proteins in my fridge, the pasta, a jar of pasta sauce and assembled the infantry “let us cook”. This dish is really easy to make with lot of flavor and some minutes spent plating would leave you wowed!
