Pasta with Pepper Prawns

Submitted by: JO_JO_BA

Introduction

The heat from two kinds of fresh peppers gets mellowed out by cooling lime, sweet tomatoes and buttery shrimp. I definitely recommend using fresh, in season tomatoes for this, right off the vine cherry tomatoes from your own backyard if possible! Adapted from Weight Watchers.
