By now we are done with turkey for quite a while, smile. 😂. Now, who doesn’t like shrimp? Not me and I am quite sure not you either. This is such a delicate flavored seafood and is so easy to cook in a variety of ways. The simpler the better, as long as it’s not overcooked, smile,
Approximate Prep and Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Approximate Cost: $12.35 or $6.18 per serving
Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
6 Jumbo Shrimp ($8.70)
1 ½ tsp. Angie’s dried seasoning or the one of your choice with Paprika (.30)
1/3 c. Angie’s Basting Oil ($1.35)
½ pk. Angel Hair Pasta (.70)
1 tbsp. Italiano Dip or any Sun Dried Tomato product (.40)
2 tbsp. Pesto Sauce (.70)
Scallions to garnish (.20)
Clean the shrimp, season with my basting and dried seasoning to taste. Refrigerate.
In a large pot bring salted water to a quick boil, add the pasta. (It takes 4-5 minutes to cook).
While the pasta cooks, sauté the shrimp in its basting oil, just until they become pink, remove from the skillet immediately.
Drain the pasta and reserve some of the water, about 1 cup, to use if the pasta becomes dry.
In a large bowl, add the pasta, Pesto sauce with its oil, and sun dried tomato dip and stir until all ingredients are combined.
Start plating the pasta, top with 3 shrimps, chop the scallions and sprinkle over the plate.
