Happy Wednesday! This week seems to be flying by! Last night we had the most amazing dinner so I wanted to share the recipe. It’s Shrimp with fresh pasta sauce. Pop over and get the recipe!
My husband and I love to eat healthy meals. And we love lots of flavor and this recipe is both healthy and delicious! Another great thing about this recipe is I had everything on hand except for the shrimp. So, a quick trip to the fish market and we were all set! Below is the recipe. I made a few changes and it was still delicious!
Shrimp with Fresh Past Sauce (from the kitchen of Deep South Dish)
1 box (13.25 oz) angel hair pasta (we used fettuccine)
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup slice green onions
2 large cloves garlic minced
1-28 oz can of Italian style tomatoes, coarsely chopped, undrained
1 teaspoon fresh basil
1 teaspoon kosher salt or to taste
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper, or to taste
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1/4 teaspoon of Cajun Seasoning
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon dried parsley, plus more for garnish
1/2 of a fresh lemon
Boil pasta in generously salted water according to package directions.
Meanwhile, heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
Add onion, garlic, and chopped tomatoes to the skillet. (we added a chopped green pepper too)
Stir in basil, salt and pepper, sugar and wine and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle the shrimp with Old Bay seasoning and Cajun seasoning and add to the sauce mix and cook until the shrimp is no longer transparent (about 3 minutes.)
Add the pasta to the sauce and stir to mix thoroughly. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the top and add parsley for garnish. We added some fresh parmesan cheese on top as well! 😉
NOTE: We omitted the wine and sugar and used 1/4 cup of chicken broth instead. We also used Hunt’s Fire Roasted Diced tomatoes instead of the Italian style tomatoes. I don’t like to stir in the pasta either. We put the pasta in a dish and top it with the sauce. When I peeled and deveined the shrimp, I washed them and sprinkled them with the old bay and cajun seasonings in a covered container in the fridge for about an hour before hand.
This makes about 4 servings. We each had a generous serving last night and I have enough for dinner tonight! Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by! xoxo Dell
