Easy Italian Pasta Shrimp, delicious sautéed shrimp made even yummier served tossed with spaghetti. Fast and easy never tasted so good.
I have to admit I am not a great lover of fish. I have come to enjoy a few types of fish, but I would never choose a trout over a steak.
That said, I might just pick this Pasta Shrimp over any steak. I am a devout follower of anything made with pasta. I can’t get enough. And this Pasta with Shrimp dish is easy and delicious, so what more could you ask for?
Easy Italian Pasta Shrimp
It is so fast and easy to put together. You can either use peeled shrimp or leave it unpeeled. I was always taught to leave it unpeeled, that way you eat the delicious pasta that is full of so much flavour, from the shrimp, olive oil and fresh parsley, a meal in itself first.
And then you dine on the shrimp. Much like the peel and eat shrimp you have in a restaurant. Believe me for something that comes together so quickly it is hard to imagine it could taste so amazing.
Or if you prefer peel the shrimp before cooking and then you just eat the pasta together with the shrimp. Either way it is the perfect Italian Pasta dish that takes no time to make and that is really yummy.
This Pasta Shrimp is a perfect family dinner or even when you are having guests to dinner. Buon Appetito!
- 1 1/2 cups of shrimp medium size
- 1 clove of garlic chopped
- 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup freshly chopped italian parsley
- 1/4 teaspoon salt additional salt if desired
- hot pepper flakes if desired
- 3 cups cooked long pasta (spaghetti)
In a large frying pan add olive oil, garlic, italian parsley, shrimp, salt and hot pepper flakes if desired. Cook on low to medium heat until shrimps are cooked and no longer pink approximately 10 minutes, but watch them and stir occasionally, because you don't want them to burn or stick to the pan. While the shrimp is cooking, cook pasta in boiling, salted water until cooked al dente. When shrimps are cooked, immediately add the pasta and half a ladle of pasta water, cook on medium heat tossing together until water has evaporated, serve immediately. Buon appetito!
