Gluten Free Lemon Dijon Shrimp Pasta is a light, tasty shrimp pasta dish. I love shrimp – it is one of my favorite foods. It is not something that I eat on a weekly basis but I do love it for a special treat or when I find it on sale. I personally love to use rice pasta with this recipe. You do have to be sure not to over cook it but it is really tasty in my opinion. Gluten Free Lemon Dijon Shrimp Pasta is so tasty and perfect for Lent.
