Shrimp Pasta Recipe
I have different shrimp pasta recipes but this recipe is my absolute favorite because it’s made with a beer sauce!
If you don’t like beer, you can use dry white wine. If you can’t have alcohol in your food, you may use chicken broth for this recipe.

I love shrimp. It’s a healthy seafood and lends the most amazing flavors to a simple pasta dish.
Shrimp is not too expensive and you can get frozen shrimp in a bag for as low as $6.99 at Target. 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.
