Fresh Tomato and Shrimp Linguine Recipe that has become popular with my friends and family.
Picking fresh vegetables from the garden and preparing a healthy dinner is one of life’s simple pleasures. Making a satisfying dish with simple ingredients that pleases your company can be a way to show that you care without spending a large amount of money. One of my favorite recipes using fresh garden tomatoes is quick, simple and healthy. This savory dish can be prepared in minutes with minimal effort.
4 fresh tomatoes, chopped
about 15 medium shrimp, tails cut off and deveined (I often substitute chicken)
1 clove of garlic, chopped finely
1 teaspoon of fresh basil (preffered) or dried basil, chopped
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
1 8oz box of whole wheat linguine or any other whole wheat pasta
Add the olive oil to a pan on medium heat, add the tomatoes, garlic, basil, half of the olive oil and salt. Cook for 5 minutes, do not overcook the tomatoes. Add the shrimp and cook until they become pink about 3 minutes.
Serve on a bed of linguine cooked and then tossed with the remaining olive oil and sea salt with a small amount of parmesan cheese grated on top (optional)
Serve with a tossed Italian salt
