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
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.
