Nor'easter Meals - Shrimp Marinara and Spaghetti

A Nor'easter is hitting NYC right now, just a week  after Hurricane Sandy. How much more can we take? There's over 19,000 homes in Brooklyn alone without power tonight! This post is dedicated to all the people out there tonight sleeping on a friend's sofa cause they have no power in their home. During Hurricane Sandy we all ran to my mom's in Brooklyn for safety. A total of 14 people under 1 roof! Talk about cooking for a crowd! Here's a recipe I cooked one night when we wanted to cheer up the crowd. I give to you my Shrimp Marinara & Spaghetti, it's a great way to stretch a little shrimp. Recipe feeds 12 because 2 out of our 14 house guests do not eat shrimp. Stay safe, Stay warm,Stay Strong-God Bless!
