Super Quick Shrimp Pasta

Life sometimes gets in the way of cooking dinner in a timely manner.  Actually, that seems to be happening to me a bit too much lately.  This shrimp pasta is one of my go to recipes for those kind of nights because it is so good in addition to being quick.  I usually just throw it together without a recipe, but this time I wrote it down so I could share it.  It serves two or three people, but you could easily double it.  It is the perfect amount for me and my husband with him having seconds.
