Margarita Shrimp Pasta

This pasta is so elegant it’s perfect for a last-minute special dinner or an impromptu celebration. If you don’t want to use shrimp, you can substitute grilled or sautéed chicken strips. Add a salad of Romaine lettuce, mandarin oranges and jicama with vinaigrette and you have a colorful, different menu.
