Creamy Shrimp and Pasta

Shrimp in a creamy pasta sauce over pasta.

Creamy Shrimp and Pasta

Mealtime has been pretty simple around here with all the yardwork goin' on, and I need to get to the grocery store too!

The leaves are steady falling out there, which if any of you have to deal with this every spring (or fall, depending on your tree), you understand the frustration. No sooner do you get them up, and sweep your walkway before it looks like you never touched it! But ... if you wait and don't keep at it, well, not only is the job MUCH bigger, but those leaves are smothering that grass up underneath that is trying to sprout and crowd out the weeds!

I'm thrilled with my new tarp for leaf pickup, and it was worth every penny I tell ya! No bending and stooping AT ALL for a change! It's like a giant dustpan - you sweep the leaves into it with a rake, grab the handles and then drag it to the spot where you are going to use them, dump them, or bag them.

We are using our leaves all around the perimeter of our privacy fence to mulch my gardens. I love to use the red garden mulch but it's expensive and this, well, it's free! Today it's dreary and overcast out there and we're due for rain for a couple of days here so it'll be a good day to make a grocery run, but first I did want to leave you with this.

Remember those stuffed pistolettes I made the other day? And how I said that also made a great sauce to serve over some hot, cooked rice or on pasta?

Well, that's what I've written up here! Oh my gosh is it good, so if you don't want to do the stuffed bread, certainly consider this as a wonderful pasta sauce! This one is made with shrimp, but I truly love this recipe over pasta with crawfish too!
