Recipe Alert: Creamy Tomato Shrimp with Penne

I thought I would share one of my favorite recipes today. We made this a few months back and fell in love with it. We then made it for two of our friends who also loved it. So, for all you pasta and shrimp lovers, here you go (**BTW, this would probably be just as good with chicken too)!

**WARNING - This is not diet friendly. I am sure you could "healthify" it a bit with wheat pasta and a healthier version or less of the alfredo sauce**
