You might want to hire a waiter to serve this one. With fresh tomatoes and chopped basil along with savory shrimp and pasta, it's that close to a seriously high-end entrée.

HOW TO PURCHASE AND STORE RAW SHRIMP

Fresh shrimp should be firm, moist and translucent and should smell like the sea. Avoid those with black spots and any trace of ammonia odor. They can vary in color from grayish-green to pinkish-tan to light pink. Place in a bowl (if wrapped in plastic, punch a few holes in the plastic) and store in the coldest part of the refrigerator up to 1 day.

HOW TO SLICE LARGE-LEAFED FRESH HERBS

Slice large-leafed herbs such as basil and mint, into thin strips by stacking several leaves on top of one another. Roll the stack lengthwise into a cylinder. Using a sharp knife, cut the cylinder crosswise to form fine shreds. This cut is called chiffonade. Be sure to use a sharp knife - a dull knife will bruise the leaves while cutting.

Awesome quick and easy dinner! I added a little onion salt and some broccoli (we wanted a little extra veg) and my boyfriend and I both really enjoyed it (he ate two heaping plates). Would definitely recommend and it s an easy recipe to switch out proteins or add ingredients to. Will for sure make again! Read More

This was an easy and delicious way to make a cream sauce! I substituted sausage for shrimp and it was YUM. I roasted my tomatoes on the oven the previous day with garlic and olive oil. Read More
