Pigtail Shrimp Pasta

A kitchen sink dinner that turned out better than expected. It’s a cross of alfredo sauce and regular ole garlic butter sauce. You won't have much sauce when done because the pasta will soak it up. Keep reading
Usually, my choice of pasta is angel hair but what I had was Rotini (pigtail, spiral). Made for one had but it could probably feed two. The dried/smoked tomatoes are optional and are me screwing around on a smoker that was cooling down for the day. You could bake your own for about 45-60 minutes in a 260 degree oven. The dried tomatoes added an extra zing that you could also substitute with true sundried tomatoes. Just a small pot, large pan, and a plate yer good to go.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
