Garlic Infused Pasta with Buttery Shrimp

A quick recipe for those on the go and in need of something that takes less than 20 minutes. It’s full of flavor and less filling than a hearty red sauce.

This one’s real quick and easy, and it’s surprisingly tasty!!!

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Frozen veined, shelled, Tailless Shrimps
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • 2 Tsp Garlic
  • 1/4 Onion Diced
  • 2 Tsp Parsley
  • 1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Pepper
  • 2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • A Small Bit of Pasta, enough for a single serving
  • OPTIONAL:  Cilantro, Marjoram, Basil, and Oregano

RECIPE

  1. Heat a pot to high and fill with water and salt, bring it to a boil
  2. Add Pasta
  3. Heat a pan to medium high, melt the butter
  4. Saute the garlic and onions for a few minutes until tender
  5. Add the shrimp, then add in the rest of the seasonings, I prefer Marjoram of the optional ingredients above, but each has it’s own characteristics, whatever you’re into
  6. The frozen shrimp will take about 15 minutes, and the juice they release adds to the garlic butter
  7. when the pasta are Opaque, add the pasta to the shrimp and butter
  8. Toss
  9. Plate and cover with the Parmesan cheese

You can do a lot with this as a basic dish, you could add in a variety of veggies; broccoli, carrots, celery, mushrooms, and peppers.  You can also add wine to the garlic butter before you add the shrimp, use a white wine and something that you would drink yourself.  Please leave your comments on the recipe and if there are anythings you would like added I will test them and make edits.  Thanks for reading!
