This shrimp scampi recipe varies from the typical one as there are sun dried tomatoes in the recipe. This is like eye candy when presented in a warmed ramekin dish with some chopped parsley and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese added to the top. Hubby says this is his favorite scampi and better than any he gets at an upscale restaurant.

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook rotini at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes; drain.

  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook shrimp in hot butter until mostly pink, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour white wine, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce over the shrimp mixture; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle tomatoes and parsley over the shrimp mixture; cook until the tomatoes are warmed, about 1 minute.

  • Divide pasta between 2 bowls; top each portion with about half the shrimp and sauce. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.

Cook's note:

I use sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil. I feel they have more flavor.

If I could I would get this 4 1/2 stars - If using cooked shrimp add them at the very last moment. Also, I would cook the pasta and toss it with the sauce so that the delicious sauce covers every bite. I cooked raw shrimp in butter and garlic, removed and then continued on with the recipe. Add the shrimp and pasta in at the end. Delicious. A few added pepper flakes to step this up a notch. A solid recipe - thank you. Read More

It’s good because you can’t go wrong with these ingredients, they work really well together, but I didn’t think this was anything special. Works good for a quick weeknight dinner Read More
