Here's something a little sweet, a little spicy with a hint of citrus! All these flavors combined make for a very refreshing meal! If you want, you could put the shrimp on skewers and throw them on your grill but I loved the fact that the pasta took on the taste of the marinade once it was combined with the shrimp! Yummy, yummy!

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
