Shrimp and Pasta in a White Wine Cream Sauce

This shrimp and pasta in a white wine cream sauce recipe is what I’d call and easy pantry recipe.  I made this dinner after work with no stop at the grocery store on the way home.  I just grabbed what was in the pantry and the freezer and tossed the ingredients together.  Easy, simple, delicious.  You can use any shape of pasta and even toss in some veggies if you are so inclined. I also love that this is a one-pot meal so it’s easy clean-up as well.
