  • 0.45kg shrimp
  • salt, pepper, and olive oil for the pan
  • 4 cloves garlic

Pasta

  • 0.45kg shrimp
  • salt, pepper, and olive oil for the pan
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 800g diced fresh tomatoes or halved cherry tomatoes
  • 470g chicken or vegetable broth
  • 57g butter
  • 10g fresh basil leaves, cut or torn into small pieces
  • salt to taste
  • 227g capellini
  • parmesan cheese for topping

Method

  • STEP 1
    Heat a swish of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shrimp and season with salt and pepper. Cook until pink, about 2 minutes per side. Remove shrimp from the pan and set aside.
  • STEP 2
    In the same pan, heat just a tiny bit more oil over medium low heat and toss the garlic in. Saute for a minute or two until it smells amazing. Add the tomatoes and broth and simmer for 10-ish minutes. The tomatoes will start to become saucy, and gradually that sauce will start to thicken. This is good.
  • STEP 3
    Cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
  • STEP 4
    Add the butter and basil to the thickened sauce and stir to combine. If it needs thickening, let it hang out on low heat for just a little while longer. Season to taste. When the sauce is ready, add the shrimp back in. Serve the sauce over top of the pasta with a little Parm, salt, and pepper.
