  • ¼ pound angel hair pasta

  • 8 tablespoons LAND O LAKES® Butter, divided

  • ½ pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 5 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tomato, diced

  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil, plus more for garnish

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair pasta in boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain; keep warm.

  2. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp in hot butter, stirring occasionally, until the meat is opaque and bright pink on the outside, 3 to 4 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer shrimp to a warm plate.

  3. Cook and stir garlic in the same skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomato, remaining 6 tablespoons butter, basil, and extra-virgin olive oil. Stir in cooked shrimp.

  4. Serve over warm pasta and garnish with additional basil.
