Rustic Penne Shrimp Pasta
One of the advantages of being a food blogger is that my camera is never far away. (Even when I'm in my car.) Mia and I were heading to the park for a morning walk when we passed these adorable bulls at the end of our street. (Yes, I just called a couple of half ton bulls, adorable.) But seriously - they were licking each others faces - what is cuter than animals kissing each other? I just couldn't help but pull over and snap a couple of pictures of these amazing animals.
I love that these animals live at the end of our road. Even after 8 years, it's still hard for me to drive by without stopping to watch them for a while.
That bull is totally sticking his tongue out at me!
OK, that's enough bull for one day. (I crack myself up.) Onto the recipe of the day - Rustic Penne Shrimp Pasta in a Parmesan and Red Pepper Cream Sauce from jennystephens.blogspot.com. This is a super easy, make ahead meal that your family will LOVE. I was so confident in this recipe that I served it to my in-laws last month.
