Shrimp Nested in Pasta with Lemon Cream Sauce

This dish is absolutely perfect. In my personal opinion, I am totally with the idea of the lemon cream sauce. It seems that the sauce perfectly adds something special. And you will love it! I am sure that the delicate shrimp in the lemon cream sauce will be the winner at your table. Even to those people who can’t tolerate dairy, it is also an inspiration. Coconut milk is also a good choice. In addition, parsley can brighten the flavor of this savory dish. You can add it as you like. (Don’t forget to try Stewed Fish on Sunday)
