Pasta with shrimps, tomatoes basil sauce.

Fresh tomatoes are abundant everywhere this time if year so it only goes without saying that we must enjoy them now, while fresh. We loved so much the tomatoes basil sauce that I decided to make it again and this time add shrimps to it. A perfect pairing and great summer dish.

When adding the shrimps make sure that the tomatoes sauce is fully cooked. The shrimps will only take minutes to prepare.

Bon Appetit!!
