Ingredients

1/4 cup olive oil 65 mL
24 shrimp, large, peeled and deveined 600 g
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tsp Parsley and Garlic Base 20 mL
1/2 cup canned tomatoes (diced) 130 g
24 mini-tomatoes (cherry, miniature or grape), halved 1 2/3 cup
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper 1 g
300 g linguine
20 leaves fresh basil, torn into small pieces, with some whole leaves for garnish 9 tbsp
2 tsp chives, fresh, finely chopped 2 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Heat half of the oil in a large pan over high heat. Add the shrimp, then cook until they are opaque throughout and pink-coloured, turning occasionally, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Take the shrimp out of the pan, transfer them to a bowl and keep them warm.
  2. Add the remaining oil to the same pan, then add the garlic and sauté 1 min until fragrant. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base and the canned tomatoes, then cook 8-10 min over low heat, until they become soft and saucy. Add the mini-tomatoes and cayenne pepper. Continue to cook 2-3 min, then remove the pan from the heat.
  3. While the sauce is cooking, cook the pasta.
  4. Put the drained linguine in the sauce pan, then put the pan back on the stove over medium heat. Add the shrimp, torn basil leaves and chopped chives. Season with salt and pepper, then toss well to combine. Serve immediately in the warmed dishes. Garnish with whole basil leaves if desired.

I replaced the parsley and garlic base with jarred sun dried tomato pesto for an easy option and top off with parmesan cheese. I use this recipe often for guest since it is very fast to prepare.
