Notes

  • If you feel like you want to spice of your Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara, don’t be afraid to add a little flavor to it.
  • My husband loves when I add a little ranch seasoning mix to it.
  • I love adding some sun dried tomatoes, or some more vegetables like asparagus, or zucchini.
  • I also love using zucchini noodles instead of angel hair pasta, just for a carb-friendly and delicious dish.
