The pasta she uses is an angel hair pasta, which is a nice and very thin pasta that is super light and great with seafood, it tends to really soak up the sauce and isn't too heavy when serving it with meat or seafood. The sauce for this yummy recipe has some nice Thai chilli sweet sauce in it, which gives it that nice little kick it needs, without being too over powering. Plus the sweet and spicy combination is one that people have always loved. Sweet and spicy flavours just activate the tastebuds in wonderful ways and make a big impact. The shrimp is cooked up with some garlic, which is always really nice, and then added to the pasta and the sauce and all mixed together to make this delicious meal.

Shrimp are a great source of protein with very little fat in them and are a wonderful choice to make when having a pasta dinner. Shrimp cook up really quickly as well, so there is no hour long wait for your meat to be cooked. In under ten minutes or so you can have some nice, cooked shrimp to go with your pasta or even in salad recipes, pizza recipes or appetizer recipes and more. If you eat shrimp, do be sure to make sure that it is not farmed shrimp. You want to buy healthy, wild caught shrimp that has been caught in its natural living environment as it will have no added antibiotics or growth hormones like farmed shrimp and fish do. When we choose to eat wild shrimp we are supporting our local economies and fisheries. Plus, these shrimp lived their lives in the wild rather then in a man made pond with restricted movement and overcrowding, not to mention all of the growth hormones and the antibiotics they are given to prevent diseases that are caused by living in containment. You could also make this recipe into a vegan recipe by substituting the shrimp out for mushrooms or any other vegetable and using the same sauce. Make sure you try this one out sometime soon and to save the recipe for future use. Thank you to Sherrie from To Simply Inspire for this awesome shrimp pasta recipe that we can't wait to try.
