Sun-Dried Tomato + Balsamic Shrimp Pasta

This delectable recipe was brought to my attention one Christmas Eve this at my dad’s house.  My sister Lisa made this pasta and I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind.  I kept stealing bites from the bowl while it sat on the counter waiting to be put away.  I had a second helping a bite at a time.

I dream about this pasta.  Any time I think of it I can instantly taste it, and I crave it until I get a bite.  It’s that addictive and good!!  You need this in your life.  Trust me.
