Cooking brings me so much joy. It’s my way of showing my love to my family and friends. Some people love giving gifts as a sign of love, I love to cook for my family. I am always pleased when my family or friends finished their plate of food. That to me means they received the love I give them through my cooking. Over the years, I have shared snippet of my cooking with you all on my Instagram stories, but never fully in depth. When you all asked that I share my recipes on the blog, it was a hard decision for me to make. Cooking to me is personal, its a form of expression of love from me. Not that I do not love you guys but rather I was afraid to share this part of my life with you all. With that being said, I have gotten over my fear and I hope you enjoy this side of me. This part of my life that I have shielded from you guys for a very long time. Side note: please forgive my presentation of the food lol, just know that it taste great. Welcome to Mo kitchen and table.

Pasta Ingredients

  • Any size pasta or spaghetti
  • White jumbo shrimp (Costco has them fresh or portain of choice)
  • Heavy whipping cream (love the Kroger brand) 
  • Shrimp and seafood seasoning (I have added photos of spices below)
  • Basel paste 
  • White or sweet onion 
  • Fresh garlic 
  • Onion leaves 
  • Italian parsley 
  • Small tomatoes 
  • Smoked Paprika 
  • Additional season of choice

Cooking instructions 


  • Bring pot of water to boil. Add salted butter or olive oil and a little salt for flavor. 
  • Add pasta to the boiling water. (boil to medium. Don’t over cook)


  • In a bow, add olive oil, basel paste 
  • Season of choice 
  • Smoked paprika 
  • Add fresh lemon juice for more flavor 
  • Add the shrimp to the seasoning base you just created.
  • Let it sit for some time and fry in a frying pan 

Pasta Sauce

  • add olive oil (or oil of choice) to frying pan 
  • Add chopped onions and garlic 
  • Cook for few minutes. Remember never to over cook anything. 
  • Cut small/grape tomatoes into two and add to the onions and garlic 
  • Add heavy whipping cream 
  • Add more seasoning 
  • Cook for few mins (5mins or little more)
  • Tip: make sure the sauce is  more than the pasta. This way, you get the pasta soaking in the sauce (lack of better description ) the goal is to have more sauce than pasta 
  • Add pasta to the sauce 
  • Add the chopped Italian parsley and onion leaves. 
  • Add air fried shrimp
  • Remove the meal from the stove right away. The goal of the chopped parsley and onions leaves is presentation. Nothing more (you want pretty looking food lol)
  • Serve with air fried shrimp and you’re ready to eat
