Creamy Shrimp Pasta


*** Recipes Tutorials ***


This is one of those meals that you can throw together super fast but it seems like a high class type of dish. It includes garlic shrimp, a white b├ęchamel sauce with nutmeg and of course spaghetti! You can pretty much get all of the other ingredients prepared while your pasta water is coming to a boil and while the pasta is cooking as well.

Ingredients:
appr. 1 lb raw shrimp (I use frozen raw peeled and deveined shrimp and they are just as good as fresh!)
1 stick butter
1-2 tsp minced garlic
appr. 1/3 block softened cream cheese(I just had this amount leftover in the fridge and it was perfect)
5-6oz spaghetti, fettucine, linguine noodles (whatever you like)
1-2 tbsp Parsley(I used dried herbs but will try it with fresh next time)
1-2 tbsp Basil
1 tsp Seasoned Salt
S&P to taste
1-2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
3/4 can diced tomatoes (you could use the whole can, I just wanted the shrimp to be the star)
1/2 pasta water
Parmesan cheese for topping

  1. Great recipe however when saying 1/2 pasta water that is really very very misleading because people use different amounts of water to boil their pasta. So any where from 4-6 qts. to as little as 1-2... 1/2 of the water in the recipe will greatly change the consistency of the recipe.

    1. Hi, If you read through the whole recipe, it says to add 1/2 cup of pasta water. I think it must have been a typo and she forgot to add "cup" to the ingredients.
