E-Z Shrimp and Basiled Pasta

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mareesme

My family loves this recipe, and I love it because it is so fast and easy to make! Use 3 tomatoes if they are large, otherwise use 4. (Note: Most any pasta can be used. I prefer linguini or spaghetti.)

Excellent entree! It has a light sauce and basil which I love. I used wholewheat pasta, less than a pound and a package of Gorton's frozen grilled shrimp. This will be a "doer again" at our house. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large frying pan, saute garlic in olive oil until tender. Add shrimp and saute a few minutes (stirring occasionally) until shrimp turns pink when done.
  2. Meanwhile, cook pasta until just tender (al dente), then drain.
  3. Add basil and tomatoes to shrimp mixture, cover and simmer about 5 minutes to release juices. Mix in cooked pasta and heat through, about 1 minute.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste, then serve with parmesan cheese.
  5. NOTE Recipe calls for 1 lb. of pasta. I lower amount if sauce does not appear "liquid-y" as it should (it depends on juiciness of tomatoes!).
