Marriage is about finding your soul mate. The ying to your yang. The one who balances and completes you. Lucky for me I did. Chris and I are opposites in so many ways it’s funny. One of the things I just can’t comprehend about him is his distaste for shrimp. I LOVE shrimp! SO when Chris had to go out of town for training the other night I knew I had to utilize shrimp into my dinner.
This pasta was just the right amount of creamy. I loved the combo of the shrimp, broccoli and spinach. The tomatoes added another flavor which went along with it perfectly.
