On a busy weekday like this, all I want is to prepare something easy and simple for my folks. A few of you already know, how much we love pasta and that we simply can’t get enough of pasta cooked in different ways.
This Shrimps Tortiglioni in Herb Cream Cheese Sauce is very quick to make and tastes unbelievably G-O-O-D!
The cooked garlicky shrimps kissed by the slight taste of creamy herb cream cheese is so fantastic! You wouldn’t guess that this recipe only needs a few ingredients. I bet most of you already have everything in your pantry. You just have to go out and buy some shrimps now. 🙂

My family and I love pasta! We could literally eat pasta every single day! I’ve cooked pasta in so many ways already and it’s fun experimenting with different type of noodles and sauces.
They are easy to cook and always come in handy if you need a quick and easy meal after a stressful day. Pasta is something which children and adults enjoy. I haven’t met anyone so far who doesn’t like pasta.
This recipe of mine is creamy, rich and packed with full of flavor because of the chicken breast which I generously seasoned and cooked before cutting into chunks.
The secret is using the same skillet with the oil of the cooked chicken. The oil contains all the great flavors of garlic, butter and onion.
This is a very simple dish which I’m sure your family and friends will LOVE!
