Simple Shrimp Pasta

[ 0 ] September 26, 2011 |

Much like the character Bubba in Forrest Gump believed, shrimp is extremely versatile. You can fry up a batch, stuff ’em in quesadillas or just eat them as is with a fresh serving of cocktail sauce. Besides the variety if offers, I love shrimp because it’s quick and easy. Here’s my SUPER quick, go-to shrimp recipe.

Ingredients (Servings based on dinner for two)

1/2 pound raw, jumbo shrimp
1 tomato
1/2 box of rotini pasta
Italian dressing (amount will vary based on personal preference)
Ragu Roasted Garlic Parmesan Sauce (about 1/3 – 1/2 the jar)
Old Bay Seasoning
Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Olive Oil


Bring a pan of rotini pasta to a boil. Clean and devein shrimp.


Add shrimp to pan with 1 tbsp of olive oil over medium heat. Season with Old Bay Seasoning*. Sautee shrimp until both sides have color.  Add freshly cut tomatoes.


Season shrimp-tomato mix with basil and garlic. Add Italian dressing and mix well.


Add Ragu Roasted Garlic Parmesan. Use your taste to judge how much to add. You will want enough to mix evenly throughout your finished pasta dish.** Mix well.  


Drain rotini and remove Parmesan-Shrimp mixture from heat. Mix all in a large bowl and serve.



Archele’s Tips
*Season to taste. Old Bay has a very bold flavor and may be a bit spicy to some.
**If you don’t want to use the Ragu Roasted Garlic Parmesan, feel free to use your personal preference.
