Shrimp & Pea Basil Spaghetti

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Hope you all guys are having a great weekend so far!

Just a quick and tasty post from me – Shrimp, Peas & Basil Spaghetti. It’s our last night’s dinner and all of us absolutely loved this simple but tasty recipe, even the little one (well she wasn’t that keen on the shrimp for some reason) so I thought I must share it with you today.
It only took me 5 minutes to cook the shrimp and peas and another 5-6 for the pasta. It’s ┬átime -saving and super tasty.

Here’s what you need.
