Tasty Tuesday

I found this recipe in a cookbook & decided to try it out as a last minute dinner: Linguine Pasta with Shrimp & Tomatoes. This recipe was fast & easy to make. My whole family loved it!

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups diced tomatoes
1 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons butter
salt and black pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta
1 pound peeled and deveined medium
shrimp
1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:
1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic; cook 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, and wine. Bring to a simmer and cook 30 minutes, stirring frequently. Once the tomatoes have simmered into a sauce, stir in the butter and season with salt and pepper.
2. Fill a large pot with lightly-salted water; bring to a rolling boil; stir in the linguine and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
3. Season the shrimp with the Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shrimp and cook until pink on the outside and no longer translucent in the center, about 5 minutes. Stir the shrimp into the pasta sauce, then stir the sauce into the linguine to serve.

I've printed this recipe off--sounds really good. I'm hoping to get my hands on some great garden-fresh tomatoes and will try it then. Thanks for sharing!

It was great!
I tweaked the recipe because I didn't have certain items (wine & cajun seasoning). However, it was still great & I was so surprised that my kids loved it. They are picky eaters sometimes.

Thanks for stopping by!
