Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta

Rated as 4.92 out of 5 Stars

"This is always a hit. The best part is how fast you can whip it up! You could just buy roasted tomatoes in a jar, but I think roasting them yourself gives the dish a very fresh, deep flavor."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Arrange tomato halves onto prepared baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the tomatoes; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Roast tomatoes in preheated oven until edges are crisp, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to cool; cut into small chunks.
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes; drain. Transfer to a large bowl.
  5. Melt butter in a skillet over low heat. Cook and stir onion, garlic, and half the basil in the hot butter until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.
  6. Stir shrimp, tomato chunks, mushrooms, and garlic powder into the onion mixture. Increase heat to medium-low and cook and stir until shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is no longer transparent in the center, about 6 minutes.
  7. Pour shrimp mixture over the angel hair pasta; top with Parmesan cheese and lemon juice and toss to coat pasta completely. Garnish with remaining basil.

Great recipe. I added some crushed red pepper, a little low sodium chicken stock and reduced the amount butter to avoid the fat.

Not a mushroom guy, so cut those out and halved the butter. Had so much flavor! I only make shrimp a couple times a year but this recipe may put shrimp into mealplan more often!

Followed the directions and it was delicious, quick and easy. I used the handy calculator and changed the servings from 6 to 2 and it was great.

So I thought a pound of butter was a typo but I always try to follow the recipe the first time I make something from this site. Don’t cut the butter and for sure don’t skip roasting the tomatoes...

Added extra mushrooms. Was true to recipe after that. Do not omit the oven roasted plum tomatos, they are the highlite of this dish.

I used thyme as i did not have any basil. Otherwise no changes. It turned out well, a lot of flavour !

It was so delicious! Just cut it in half or so. Just for my husband and I. Can’t wait to make it again!!

Making this again
