It’s been tough trying to make time to cook and create new blog recipes, so when I do, I make sure they count. And not to toot my own horn, but this is a damn good one! I originally set out to make a simple pasta bake with tomatoes and basil, but when I saw my cilantro just sitting in the windowsill on the verge of wilting, I made a last minute decision to use it instead. I love this fragrant herb because it adds robust flavor to any dish and seems to marry perfectly with lime.
A creamy zesty cheese sauce, tender juicy shrimp, fresh lime juice, and just the right amount of spice without overpowering the other flavors makes this my new go-to pasta dish! I made this for my parents and before she had even finished her plate, my mom was already requesting for it to be made again.. as in the next day! She may or may not be slightly biased, but I’m confident enough in this recipe myself to tell you that it will become a favorite of your family’s too!
