A delicious Shrimp Pasta Dish that will become one of favourite Pasta Recipes.
Well, school started today for my youngest daughter, and so far so good. First day done, approximately 220 to go!
She came home extremely motivated and full of optimism for the coming school year. This is a big one for her, high school, first year. We can only hope for the best.
As I up date this post with new photos and I cannot believe that my daughter is now into her 4th year of high school!
Here in Italy high school is a little, no actually, a lot different from what I was used to. There are technical schools, such as cooking, bookkeeping, computer and the more complicated ones such as Languages, Science and the dreaded Classic.
My youngest daughter followed in her sister’s footsteps and chose Classic. Where Latin and ancient Greek are taught. So needless to say an interesting year is upon us.
Let us just hope that if the first day is any example to the coming year, all should go well. And yes it has gone well.
Italian Shrimp and Tomato Pasta
This year becomes a little more difficult because the school week is not five days but six. She will be attending school even on Saturday.

Slowly but surely this is becoming a thing of the past in a lot of schools, but unfortunately not in hers yet.
She finishes school at 1:10 p.m. which means I really need to have something on the table for my family that I can make quickly and that is also delicious.
That is where this Italian Pasta with Shrimp and Tomatoes Recipe comes in handy. Made with small frozen or fresh shrimp, fresh ripe tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and some fresh herbs that are still hanging on from the summer.
