Making Recipes Your Way

This Italian Shrimp Pasta recipe was inspired by a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis as I watched her make something similar on a tv show one day. What she made sounded and looked so delicious I wanted to make it. However, I didn’t have all the ingredients she used to make her dish.

So, I went with what I had and came out with a dish that was delicious on my own. I went with spinach as it is one of hubby’s favorite veggies and I tossed in asiago cheese, which is a favorite of mine. The combination was so good we had it later again the next week!

What You Need To Make Italian Shrimp Pasta

Bowtie Pasta is what I had on hand, but a spiral pasta or cavatappi would be great as well.

Raw Shrimp, peeled and deveined

Olive Oil

Fresh Spinach

Cherry Tomatoes

Asiago Cheese is similar to parmesan cheese but not quite as dry.

Tips, Recommendations, and Substitutions

  • Reserve 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and toss it with the cooked pasta to keep it from sticking together while you are preparing the rest of the meal.
  • Measure the cherry tomatoes before cutting them in half.
  • Substitute parmesan cheese for the asiago cheese.
  • Use bay scallops in place of the shrimp
  • Substitute 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder for the garlic cloves
