Read Time: 4 minutes

Celebrated one of my girlfriend’s birthday end of January over a simple dinner. And my usual contribution would be either making salad, pasta, dessert or can be a combination. This time I made a quick and delicious pasta that perfect for everybody 😋🍝😋

Making the pasta dish is one of my favorites, why? Coz not only it’s delicious but also easy to make and it only requires little effort. Also perfect combo with prawn/shrimp. Can never go wrong with these 2 ingredients 😉

The usual sauce for this recipe is actually with basil pesto sauce but I thought why not try the sun-dried tomato pesto instead?!? I love to experiment and thankfully so far so good…

Alright, so let’s jump into looking at the ingredients!

Ingredients

Main Ingredients
▪️ 2 tbsp olive oil
▪️ 1 lb shrimp (peeled and deveined)
▪️ 10 oz or 284 gms white & brown mushrooms (sliced)
▪️ 1/3 cup sun-dried tomato pesto
▪️ 4-5 medium-size garlic cloves (minced)
▪️ 1/4 cup dry white wine ( add more if needed)
▪️ 1/2 cup sodium-free sodium chicken broth or 1/3 chicken broth if with sodium
▪️ 1/4 tsp salt (can skip if chicken broth contains sodium)

Seasoning Mixture for Prawn
▪️ 1 tsp Italian Seasoning (or combination of thyme, oregano, basil)
▪️ 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes (make it lesser if you can’t take spicy)
▪️ 1 tsp paprika (make it lesser if you can’t take spicy)
▪️ 1/2 tsp salt or just a pinch
▪️ chopped fresh basil

▪️ 10 oz or 284 gms any type of pasta (you can use either gluten or gluten-free pasta, I used the gluten-free)

Instructions

  1. Put the shrimp in a mixing bowl and rub in seasoning mixture, mix it well till all seasoning coated in the shrimp.
    Over a medium heated pan, put 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the shrimp and cook for about 2-3 minutes each side till shrimp turned pink and cooked. Remove the shrimp from the skillet.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil to the skillet till it gets hot. Add sliced mushrooms and 1/4 tsp of salt and stir. Stir it until mushroom’s liquid reduced. For about 2 minutes.
  3. Add minced garlic when mushrooms almost ready. Saute for about 2 minutes and add the cooked shrimp.
  4. Add the sun-dried tomato pesto, stir and then pour the white wine slowly into the skillet. Add the broth and allow it to boil and reduce for about 2-3 minutes.
  5. As for the pasta – follow the cooking instructions from the packaging. Drain but don’t rinse and set aside.
  6. Add pasta to the skillet and stir pasta till it’s fully coated with the sauce.
  7. Allow warming for a bit and ready to serve. Sprinkle it with fresh basil leaves and red pepper flakes, if desired.
    ❇️ For more flavor, sprinkle with mixed shredded white cheddar cheese or parmesan (optional)
