To go with the pasta, and have something that the kids will like, I also made shrimp skewers on the grill. I brushed them with olive oil, sprimkled with salt and pepper, and put shrimp seasoning on them. For some reason, shrimp on skewers is the only shrimp my kids will eat.
Everything turned out well. The kids had fun; Steve and I really liked the pasta, and all the shrimp was eaten.
