After going to the store and hauling the food and items upstairs, four flights of eight stairs, we dashed inside to keep the air-conditioned air inside. My Father used to raise his voice and ask if we were born in a barn and why were we trying to cool the neighborhood. Point taken Dad. So we hurriedly put the food away and I told my husband I would have dinner for us in a flash. He was going to work, but I wasn’t letting him leave with an empty stomach. We both have a tendency of working in trance=like states and before we know it it’s hours since we got up and we haven’t eaten anything, other than coffee. This morning he made the pot and it tasted wonderful. “See honey, you can cook coffee beans just right. Umm.”
Here’s what I put together and it was perfectly cooked and highly pleasant to our taste buds.
Theresa’s Shrimp-Eazy Pasta
1 package (25 count) large shrimp for cocktail (freshly steamed from the seafood deli) This is added at the end.
1/2 stick unsalted butter + 3 more Tbsp for the pasta dish.

1 cup sliced white mushrooms
4 garlic cloves pressed
salt & pepper to taste
3-5 stalks rosemary
