Hi guys! I have such a quick and easy recipe for your today. I didn't take too many pictures, because I was STARVING when I made it last night, and I didn't have the patience. The recipe is too easy, and can be made in about 15 minutes flat. Gotta love a quick weeknight meal!
Start by carmelizing some onion. I used bacon grease for this (I always keep a jar in my fridge), but you can use olive oil if you like :)
Once they had some color, I removed the onions and added in some more olive oil, along with some garlic and crushed red pepper. I let that simmer for a minute to infuse the olive oil, then added in my shrimp. Peeled and de-veined, of course.
Once the shrimp are opaque, remove them as well. Then throw your onions back in the pan, along with a jar of your favorite sauce. I used an simple, organic tomato sauce.
Once the sauce comes to a bubble, add in some half and half or heavy cream. It helps to heat it up a bit, so that the cream doesn't seperate in the hot tomato sauce. Season if needed.
Once you're sure it tastes good, add in the shrimp, along with your cooked linguini.
Top this with tons of parmesan and serve with warm garlic bread!
We had our final baby shower this weekend! Head on over to the baby page to see all the sweet details! We had such a blast and are soo thankful for our friends and family that showered our baby girl with tons of love!
SHRIMP DIABLO WITH LINGUINI
1 pound peeled, de-veined shrimp (21-25 count)
1 pound whole wheat linguini
1 jar of organic tomato sauce
1/2-1 cup half and half or cream, warmed through
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 tbs crushed red pepper (1 tbs is still spicy!)
1 onion, diced
Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Cook onions until they have some color and remove. Add in more olive oil, along with garlic and red pepper flakes. Once the garlic is cooked through, add in your shrimp. Cook for 2 minutes on each side and remove. At this point, you can drop your pasta into boiling water.
Add the onions back to the pan, along with the tomato sauce. Once it bubbles, taste for seasoning. Add in your cream and let bubble until heated through. Add in shrimp and pasta and stir to combine. Serve with parmesan on top.
