Shrimp Pasta With Creamy Mozzarella Sauce

Shrimp Pasta in a deliciously creamy and cheesy Mozzarella sauce.  This easy weeknight dinner is made completely from scratch with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, and red pepper flakes.

First of all, let me confess my love for shrimp. It’s one of my favorite types of seafood!  I cook it quite often with all kinds of flavors, such as this pesto shrimp with mushrooms or creamy shrimp tortellini.
