20 MINUTE or less Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Shrimp Pasta packed with juicy shrimp (or chicken) and more flavor than a 5 star restaurant at a fraction of the cost!
You guys know I love pasta from Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta, Shrimp Fettuccine, Spaghetti and Meatballs, Weeknight Spaghetti Bolognese, Million Dollar Mac and Cheese and Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti, but I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of my favorite pastas of ALL time. I kid not. Not when it comes to Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Shrimp Pasta!
This shrimp pasta is quick and easy – 20 minutes or less – but the flavors are out of this world thanks to the Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Pesto. I’ve used almonds in my pesto because I love a good almond pesto and I always have them on hand, along with sundried tomatoes, basil, shallots, and garlic.
The pesto is further enhanced by tomato paste and balsamic vinegar for a sweet and tangy earthy flavor that is crazy delicious.
Once you process your pesto (in literally, just a couple minutes) comes the best part – add it to your skillet along with your shrimp and saute your shrimp in the sun-dried pesto glory…
Add some Parmesan along with your linguine and some reserved pasta water…
Now if your husband is allergic to shrimp (sorry Patrick), or you don’t like shrimp, have shrimp or want shrimp (gasp!), then you can easily substitute chicken and still be drowning yourself in this pasta in 20 minutes!
And loving it.
