Have I mentioned that I LOVE shellfish? Mussels, oysters, crab, lobster, shrimp, scallops...you name it, I want it. Sad news though; when you're pregnant you need to make sure it's thoroughly cooked and limit it to once a week. That means goodbye sushi and hello one seafood meal per week - you can bet I'm going to make it a good one.  I keep telling my husband that while some women want champagne brought to the hospital post-delivery, all I want is fresh sushi and a fat medium-rare steak. For the time being though, I'll gladly take this pasta. 

Quick, easy and so delicious. You're going to want this shrimp pasta every week.
