How to make Pasta and Spicy Shrimp

As I was on my way home from work, the other day I considered what I would make for dinner.

I was in the mood for shimp and considering I had rice the day before predictably I didnt want anymore rice so it had to be shrimp and pasta.

Not surprisingly I googled shrimp recipes and found a photo that really enticed me.
