Creamy Farfalle with Shrimp

JoSele Swopes


This is so easy and amazing, it feeds an army. It is fresh and flavorful. I made this for my mom and some friends, they loved. On the day we were making marmalade and bread and butter pickles, I figured I would make this, this is my own recipe. I hope everyone enjoys it.
