Shrimps And Tagliatelle Pasta In Napoletana Sauce #FISH FRIDAY FOODIE

When the theme for this month was given by our host Caroline Williams - create some pasta dishes with fish and seafood. I was quite thrilled, always prepared pasta with poultry or veggies, never even thought of making it fish or seafood. Joining Fish Friday Foodie - is pushing me to venture into different cuisines with fish and seafood, I am loving it. Thanks Caroline for hosting this event and choosing such a wonderful theme.

This group is a brain child of Wendy , if you wish to join this group,  kindly send her an email, with your blog url at (   and she will gladly add you to the group.

Since my hubby is out on a trip for two days who hates the smell of fish and never touches it, by the way he is a pure vegetarian ... so you can understand.  Causally told  my daughter today  shrimp pasta for lunch, she had a very funny expression on her face. When she had it for lunch she looked at me, Ma this is tasting good, happy me..... Packed a container for my friend whose family also enjoyed this, sent me a message, yummy..

Here are the ingredients for the delicious dish...

Serves 4 - 5
