Shrimp Pasta



Easy and delicious, just the way I like my meals!  For two servings you will need:
  • 1/2 pound of shrimp, deveined and peeled with tails intact
  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes, halved
  • 10-12 basil leaves, torn
  • 4 ounces fettuccine
  • Olive oil for cooking
Bring a pot of water to boil and cook the pasta according to the box.

Meanwhile, heat a small amount of olive oil in a pan over medium heat.  Add the shrimp and cook until opaque throughout.  When the shrimp are done, remove them from the pan and add half of the tomatoes and a splash of water.  This will make a light sauce- for some extra flavor, take the tails off the shrimp to leave in the pan.  Bring the mixture to a boil, then allow the sauce to simmer and the flavors to blend.

Drain the pasta and toss with the shrimp, tomato sauce, and remaining tomatoes.  Top with basil.
Enjoy!
