Shrimp with Fettuccine in Tomato Cream Sauce

I love this rich, flavorful meal. The tomato cream sauce can be used in so many dishes but one of my favorite ways is to combine it with shrimp and fettuccine. It’s my version of comfort food. And it only takes about 30 minutes to make!

If you double the recipe use the same amount of cream.
