This dish is simple but elegant, and excellent if you're looking for something that's full of flavor without the heaviness of a cream sauce. Garnish with grated Asiago cheese as desired.

  • Heat remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and saute until shrimp turns pink, 3 to 4 minutes. Add basil and garlic; cook for 2 to 3 minutes more.

  • Add butter and cooked linguine. Toss until butter melts, making sure to coat the linguine with the sauce. Remove from heat. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

You may use dried linguine if preferred.

I made a few minor changes as I made this just for me, 1/4 of the pasta and shrimp and 1/2 of the sauce. I found that the sauce was just enough for one portion. I had fresh pasta on hand, I made it yesterday, so I used that. We're in "stay at home" due to Covid-19 and I didn't have Asiago so I used shaved parmesan. This is a really quick recipe but it needs some acid, maybe lemon zest? If I make this again I will add the fresh basil at the end, uncooked, as the flavour doesn't seem to come through. Thanks for sharing. Read More

It was a really quick & easy recipe!! We had with salad. I like the fact you can adjust recipes to how many ppl you are feeding. Sometimes I have 4 ppl, sometimes 6 or 8ppl. Shrimp cooks real fast & if using pre-cooked shrimp you just have to heat it through. Will definitely be making this again, especially on nights too hot to cook on grill. Read More
