Easy Shrimp Scampi Pasta

Amazingly easy shrimp scampi pasta comes together in 30 minutes, and is one of my favorite pasta dishes! Perfect for those nights when I don’t feel like a heavy alfredo. Make sure and get a dry white wine for this, as the sweet ones don’t work as well in my opinion. This recipe is brought to you by my lovely friends over at Gourmet Garden.

Shrimp Scampi Pasta Recipe

Shrimp Scampi Pasta is SO easy, but it is also always a show-stopper. I always feel a little fancy when I make this at home because over here we are pretty regular into the chicken/pork/beef protein rotation. When the fish or seafood gets whipped out it definitely changes things up a bit.

Easy Shimp Scampi Pasta

Since my shrimp was pre-cooked, I started by making my sauce. If I would’ve had raw shrimp I would’ve begun the dish by quickly cooking the shrimp in a little bit of butter, shell on, until they were pink. Either way is really good, so use what you’ve got!

I love Gourmet Garden products for dishes like these where I am going for fast, easy, AND delicious. It cuts down on the prep time without sacrificing the flavor of the fresh garlic and herbs, at all. Gourmet Garden herbs and garlic aren’t heat treated while they are processed, so you don’t lose any of the freshness like you do with the jarred, chopped garlic.
