Creamy And Lemony Shrimp Macaroni




Pasta is one of my favorite Italian dish. Adding rich creamy flavor to pasta makes them more special. Shrimp on the other hand goes very well with pasta's, pepper gives a very good flavor to shrimps hence I have used pepper to marinate the shrimp in this recipe. A perfect candlelight dinner recipe..
