Bang Bang Shrimp Pasta

Have you ever had Bang Bang Shrimp at Bonefish Grill?  Ohhhh boy….those things are seriously addictive.  Unfortunately they are deep fried and coated in a mayonnaise based sauce.  These delicious little bites of heaven are like a heart attack waiting to happen.  A couple of years ago I ran across a recipe for skinny bang bang shrimp and they were so yummy!  Then a few days ago I found a recipe that uses them in a pasta!  Imagine it, a whole meal based on Bang Bang shrimp!  Who could resist?  This recipe from Skinny Mom sounded great but I knew I loved the original shrimp recipe from The Cookie Rookie.  So I combined the two.  I made the Cookie Rookie’s recipe and then tossed it with spaghetti and it was fabulous!  I served it cold and we were both in shrimp heaven!

Just make the recipe below and toss it with your favorite cooked pasta.
