Pasta with Shrimp in a Gruyere Wine Sauce

Pasta with Shrimp in a Gruyere Wine Sauce


Ok, I admit it.  I have this crazy love of seafood in a creamy white wine and Gruyere cheese sauce, so pasta with shrimp in this sauce is just perfect.  I don’t know how may times I have gone to create a “new” seafood dish that as I have added a little of this and a little of that I realized I was coming up with a very similar recipe to this.  It is just so good that I can’t help it.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
