Shrimp and Brie Pasta

This recipe came out of necessity. I had a pack of brie sitting in my fridge feeling very neglected for the last week or so. Originally I thought I wanted to bake the whole thing until the husband decided to help himself to a bit of it thereby ruining the whole aesthetics of a baked brie! Thus formed the need for using up the brie chopped so it did not effect the aesthetics- the dilemma of a food obsessed blogger! This simple pasta dish is a one pot meal ready within minutes. Have it for lunch or dinner or for when you are entertaining next. Double or triple the recipe as needed @sarchakra
