Whole grain pasta with shrimps

If you have read my “What I eat in a day” post then you should remember that I’ve promised you all a new recipe. I like to spoil my mom and make her this meal from time to time and as she seems to enjoy it a lot I figure that you might like it too so here it is and as usual, please let me know if you’ve tried it & liked it!

Ingredients:
  • whole grain pasta;
  • 350 grams of shrimps – I buy the ones without “tail” (less or more depending on how much you want to make);
  • 3 garlic cloves;
  • butter;
  • white wine;
  • 2 sticks of spring onion;
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce;
  • salt and pepper;
  • a bigger and deep pan;
Instructions:
  1. Chop up the garlic cloves and the spring onion (I usually chose not to put the whole onions leaves);
  2. Put them in your pan along with some butter – I cut a stick about 2 fingers thickness, and cook them until they become brown;
  3. Add your shrimps and pour as much white wine as you need to cover them then add some salt and pepper;
  4. You can now start making your pasta too just just boil them in some salted water for as long as the instructions demand;
  5. Let them cook for about 10 minutes or until the wine starts to reduce its volume but make sure you stir them from time to time;
  6. Add the tomato sauce, stir and let it cook on medium-low heat about 10 more minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken (the more you let them cook the less sauce you will have);
  7. After the pasta is done cooking and you reach the desire consistency for your sauce, drain the pasta and add it into the pan then stir them all together;
  8. Turn off the heat and let your meal sit for a bit before you put a nice portion on your plate;

Bon Appétit !
