Shrimp and pasta are perfect together when it comes to making quick and easy meal for weeknight dinner.

Shrimp is love. It’s a healthy seafood and lends the most amazing flavours to a simple pasta dish.

Shrimp is not too expensive and you can get fresh shrimp in a bag for as low as Rs.330  at

For pasta, I love using spaghetti.

You can also use angel hair pasta, linguine or fettuccine. Other than that, penne and fussili are great, too.


Homemade pasta is so tasty and healthy. To make this easy recipe with spicy and red sauce, you will need the following ingredients:

·      Shelled and deveined shrimp. You can have tail-on or tail-off shrimp.

First, make the spicy shrimp in red sauce. Next, just add pasta and mix well with the shrimp and dinner is ready for the entire family.
