~ Summer Spanish Shrimp / Pasta Soup ~ Cass

Cassie *


This is one delicious dish, that I enjoyed throwing together. My husband devoured 2 bowls of it and said I could make it again, anytime. It eats more like a meal than a soup. If you want it soupier, just add more broth, but would probably up the spices, so not to water down the flavor. If you like cilantro, it would also work in this dish. I hope you try it sometime...the flavor was awesome!
