Easy Shrimp Rigatoni Pasta Recipe

Hello foodies,

How are you?  Our Greek Easter is over had a lovely time we spent Easter at my brother’s so it was a nice very small get-together.   And so I am back at work and of course blogging, podcasting, and many more other projects in the works.  When we returned it was time for me to hit the kitchen for a  newer version of one of my favorite recipes Shrimp Rigatoni Pasta.  Very simple and easy especially when you can use frozen shrimps and veggies for this recipe.

There is a similar recipe we make in Greece called Astakomakaronada, Greek Lobster Pasta Recipe. Unfortunately, Lobsters here are so expensive that it really isn’t worth it.  I had asked at the fish market about 2 years ago and back then the price was about 50 euros for one lobster!!   So, I said thank you but noooo thank you!!  Shrimps are inexpensive so mainly our seafood dishes consist of Shrimps, Calamari, Mussels and I think one or two more.

So, here is something that you don’t know I have had an Instant Pot Pressure cooker for a while now and have not yet used it.  Why? not sure why, maybe because I haven’t found a recipe that kinda wants me to try it out.  I’m thinking I will probably use it once  Soup Season comes around.  Anyone else out there has an Instant Pot Pressure cooker just sitting in the box?

Have a great morning/noon/afternoon/evening everyone!!
