One Pot Shrimp Pasta Primavera

I didn’t have a food blog in those days, but the writing was on the wall. I was already obsessed with food. I collected and distributed recipes like they were currency.

I worked in a small department with awesome coworkers. One coworker in particular always had something fun for lunch. (She also ironed her jeans and sweaters. She was the total package).

This Shrimp Pasta Primavera was one of her recipes. She got it from the back of a McCormick Recipe Inspirations package (they sell small amounts of different spices in a package, along with a recipe, and you supply the rest of the ingredients).
