Special Notes:  Glenda V. Roberts ( nutritional intormation will vary when adding the following ingredient) refer to ingredients on package.
You can find ingredients at Trader Joe’s. I use the Trader Joe’s Italian Farfalle authentic Italian pasta (Bowtie Pasta). My favorite is serving this dish over shrimp and mix vegetables from Trader Joe's brand.  (large cooked shrimp    "tail-off" ready to eat - just thaw and rinse), vegetables ( Melange a Trois, red, yellow & green bell pepper strips). I get them all at Trader Joe's.

Once sauce is ready, drain pasta and mix shrimp, peppers and sauce together, cook and additional 5 minutes (only if you enjoy well cook shrimp).
