So LoverBoy gave me some grocery money to buy stuff to cook whatever I like so I decided to make some shrimp pasta. It was nice and fresh and yummy :) So here's what I did.
You will need:
shrimp (or other seafood)
First, you want to decapitate/de-vein/de-leg and (thaw and) wash your shrimp.
|Mine had to defrost in some water as well; this also keeps them nice and juicy while I'm prepping my skillet.|
|I've got on black crackle nail polish over green HD by the way ;)|
You're going to want to "dice" about five or six mushrooms (yum) annnnnnddddd
|This is what happens when you don't own a cutting-board and don't trust your counter-tops: you use the egg carton box.|
|The mint is on the right (the rosemary on the left was for another project which you'll hear about in a few posts. I got these herbs straight from the yard. Yum.|
At this point, your noodles are probably done, if not, turn down the heat on the sauce and continue to stir occasionally. When your noodles are done, strain and put in a big bowl, add a tad more cooking oil to ensure there is no clumping. Clumpy noodles are gross :P. Add your shrimp.
Now the skillet you cooked your shrimp in, keep that just like it is and throw in some tomatoes, the kind that are kind of cut in triangular shapes (whatever they call that). Let 'em sizzle for a bit. Stir them around every now and then.
Now, when your tomatoes have that nice "grilled tomatoes from Olive Garden" smell, toss them in with the noodles. Mix it all up, put it in the bowls and go stir your sauce yet again. Ladle the yummy sauce onto the pasta (smell it?!) and enjoy!
|Of course, if my presentation were better, it wouldn't be in a Tupperware but whatever. :)|
