Mediterannean Shrimp & Pasta

This easy and quick dinner is a light and flavorful meal. In less than 30 minutes, you will create a feast with delicate shrimp tossed with a tangy pasta in a lemon, wine, tomato sauce. The flavors are lip smackin' good, a great go to for a meatless meal that satisfies any appetite. Sprinkle with some red pepper flakes and parmesan to bring this plate over the top!



I used Barilla's Collezione Bucatini pasta to enhance the plate, with 16/20 E-Z Peel shrimp. Perfecto!



 

Michy's Mediterranean Shrimp & Pasta

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • ¾ lb pasta (long, round pasta)

  • 1 lb large shrimp peeled and deveined (thawed if frozen) (16/20 count)

  • ½ yellow onion chopped

  • 5 garlic cloves minced

  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • 1 lemon zested and juiced

  • Large handful chopped fresh parsley about 1 cup packed

  • 2 to 3 vine ripe tomatoes chopped

  • Kosher salt

  • Black pepper

  • Extra virgin olive oil

  • Parmesan cheese to top

  • Red pepper flakes (optional)


Directions

  1. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water according to package. Reserve a little bit of the pasta water when draining.

  2. Begin to cook shrimp while pasta cooks. In a large pan heat 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, cook shrimp on each side for 2 to 3 minutes until it turns pink, then transfer to bowl.

  3. Reduce the heat to medium-low & add the onions, garlic, oregano and cooking for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

  4. Add the white wine to the pan and scrape up any pieces of garlic and onions. Cook the wine for 1 minute to reduce.

  5. Add lemon juice & zest, chopped parsley and tomatoes, toss about for about 30 to 40 seconds. Season with Kosher salt to taste.

  6. Add the cooked pasta to the pan, and toss to coat. Add some of the pasta water if you need to, in order to bind and liquify the sauce.

  7. Add the cooked shrimp. Toss well & remove from heat.

Sprinkle a little grated parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes.


Serve immediately!
