This is a very simple shrimp and pasta dish that I love. I recommend using fresh basil because the flavor is better.

Scrounging for a recipe from what little I had left in my kitchen and came across this. SO glad I did because it's a keeper. Really great flavor. I didn't have fresh basil or shallots but I made due with dried basil and white onion and it still came out great. Can't wait to try with the appropriate ingredients. I threw some red pepper flakes and minced garlic in with the sauce for a little kick too. Delicious!

Made this exactly as written with fresh basil. We wanted to have seconds but we are doing portion control! It is so easy to fix and is a good recipe for an RV with no oven!

I love this simple recipe and it never takes me more than 30 minutes to make. I always add fresh or frozen spinach at the end to try and add some more nutrition for my kids. Simple and sensational!
