EASY SHRIMP SCAMPI PASTA
1/2 pound spaghetti
4 tablespoons salted butter
1 teaspoon Gourmet Garden Chunky Garlic Stir-in Pasta
1/2 teaspoon Gourmet Garden parsley
1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 chicken broth
3 tablespoons heavy cream or half-and-half
1 pound cooked shrimp peeled and deveined
1 cup freshly shredded parmsan cheese
salt & pepper to taste
Start your spaghetti noodles and cook until al dente. Drain and set aside.
While the noodles are cooking, melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Let the butter brown just a touch, and then add in the garlic and parsley. Stir to combine, and cook 30 seconds.
Add the wine, broth, and half-and-half.
Let simmer for 5-6 minutes over medium heat until reduced by about half, and add in the shrimp.
Simmer for 2 minutes, and toss with the pasta. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese over it all while it is still hot, and toss to combine.
Serve immediately with a green salad and crusty bread.
Amazingly easy shrimp scampi pasta comes together in 30 minutes, and is one of my favorite pasta dishes! Perfect for those nights when I don’t feel like a heavy alfredo. Make sure and get a dry white wine for this, as the sweet ones don’t work as well in my opinion. This recipe is brought to you by my lovely friends over at Gourmet Garden.
