How do I know that this is an amazing shrimp soup recipe?
I made a sauce version to be served on pasta which is probably the best sauce ever. The Shrimp with sun dried tomato cream sauce is a creamy sauce made with chicken stock, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, parmesan and hint of red pepper flakes. This is great served over pasta or a big hunk of crusty bread.
I couldn’t stop there. Well, I had to create an instant pot version (Click here for more instant pot recipes). Instant Pot Creamy Tuscan Chicken soup which is just an Instant pot version with chicken. So, you know this is GOOD STUFF!
