Shrimp Tomato Summer Pasta Recipe Garlicky Shrimp Pasta        It seems like I haven’t had a good summer pasta in forever! With the tomatoes starting to take off & an abundance of basil on hand I decided to make this light summer pasta with shrimp. It has a garlic butter & olive oil sauce, lemon, basil fresh tomatoes & a lot of shrimp. Don’t you hate it when you order a shrimp pasta at a restaurant & the plate comes out with three shrimp?

I did not skimp on the shrimp. Promise.

Shrimp Tomato Summer Pasta Recipe Garlicky Shrimp Pasta

Light & refreshing summer pasta dish.

Ingredients

  1. 12 oz pasta (I used spaghetti)
  2. 4 c uncooked shrimp
  3. 4 Tbsp minced garlic
  4. 2 tsp black pepper
  5. 2 tsp sea salt
  6. 1/2 cup olive oil
  7. 1/4 cup butter
  8. 1/2 lemon
  9. 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, shredded
  10. 2 large tomatoes, chopped

Instructions

  1. Prepare & cook the pasta according to the directions on the box.
  2. In a large skillet combine shrimp, garlic, black pepper, salt, olive oil & butter.
  3. Stir ingredients over a low heat.
  4. Squeeze the lemon, remove seeds & add the juice to the skillet.
  5. Stir in basil leaves.
  6. Once the pasta is almost done add the tomatoes to the skillet to warm them. Don't overcook, you want the tomatoes to be warm & fresh. It's one of my favorite parts about this pasta.
  7. Drain & rinse pasta & combine the skillet ingredients with it.
  8. Toss well, serve & enjoy.

Notes

Shrimp could easily be substituted for chicken or some other meat.
