Hi my fellow foodies!

Man I can’t believe how fast summer is going. I’m off on vacation starting TODAY!!! YAYAYAY I will hopefully have lots of pictures to share when I come back and hopefully a few fun food items too.

Take a look at this beauty. This was incredibly tasty, although definitely not a low fat meal. More of a treat from time to time or could be something impressive to make for the in-laws or any guests you may have. You can experiment with different ingredients. I’m a sucker for basil especially in the summer time so I garnished mine with it. Deeeelicious. Hope you enjoy!!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2  lb medium raw shrimp, shell removed
  • ¾ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon hot chili flakes
  • ½ teaspoon dried basil, or 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil(I prefer fresh)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan to serve

Instructions: 

  1. Put the tomatoes, onion, chili flakes, basil, garlic and butter in a heavy pan , season with pepper.
  2. Add the wine and cook over med/high heat until mixture is soft and most of the wine has evaporated. You will have about ¼ cup liquid remaining in the pan.
  3. Peel shrimp and dry on paper towels. Lightly season shrimp with salt and pepper and saute in 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium/high heat, just until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Cook pasta in salted water with 1 tablespoon olive oil, according to the package instructions until al dente (tender but firm to the bit). Rinse, Drain and set aside.
  5. Once the sauce has mostly evaporated, stir in the cream and add the shrimp. Warm through gently for 2 minutes.
  6. Toss the pasta with the sauce. Sprinkle with Parmesan and fresh basil and serve!
