Garlic & Shrimp Pasta

in Dinner in a Dash, Gluten Free, Recipes

I don’t have pasta very often, but when I do, I love the garlic & shrimp pasta.  I used brown rice spaghetti to keep it gluten free.  You could also use a whole wheat spaghetti to make it higher fiber. I love that this recipe is done in 15 minutes.
