Spicy Shrimp Spaghetti

shrimpspaghetti2I am a big fan of Rachel Ray and love her 30 Minute Meals show a lot. She shows simple ways to make complex-looking entrees that too in 30 minutes. I love her cooking shows very much . If you have a very short time to make something nice, this Shrimp Spaghetti recipe will be an excellent choice for you.
