I got this from Olive Garden's website,
- 1 1⁄2 lbs roma tomatoes, cored and cut
- 20 medium fresh basil leaves, stems removed
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon italian seasoning
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1⁄2 cup white wine
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 1 lb angel hair pasta, cooked
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese
- 1 1⁄2 lbs shrimp
- Combine tomatoes, basil, olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning and salt in a large bowl and blend thoroughly. Cover, set aside and marinate for at least 1 hour.
- Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add butter and let melt. Stir in white wine and bring to a boil. Add heavy cream and Parmesan cheese and bring to a simmer. Let sauce reduce to desired consistency.
- Add cooked, drained pasta and marinated tomatoes to skillet. Stir to thoroughly coat pasta with sauce.
- Transfer pasta and sauce to serving platter and top with mozzarella cheese.
- Grill or sauté shrimp until internal temperature reaches 150°F and set aside.
- Place serving platter in broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese has melted.
- Top pasta with cooked shrimp and serve.
Wonderful and very similar to Olive Gardens dish. My boyfriend loved it. Make sure to use heavy whipping cream, and i used 1 cup instead and added a little extra wine and butter to the sauce, as well as mushrooms.
Absolutely wonderful! i made one change to accommodate a picky eater, instead of mixing in the tomatoe mixture in with the pasta and sauce, i added them to the shrimp as i still had them frying to cook the tomatoes, which added a nice thorough flavor to the shrimp. i then added it to the pasta and layer it between mozzarella and sauce. Definitely a must try and enjoy again and again!
Since we do not have an Olive Garden we search out recipes from there. This turned out really good - I used "Giant" shrimp- pinked up in the microwave without added spices since I was not sure how the pasta would be - and the pasta was great with it. The flavors of the sauce perked up the shrimp when I stirred them in before serving to heat through.
