  • - Hey everyone, it's Natasha of natashaskitchen.com.

  • Today we're gonna make a pasta

  • that takes just 30 minutes to make.

  • It has shrimp, it has a tomato creamy sauce

  • that's creamy but light at the same time.

  • It's awesome, you guys are gonna love it.

  • So let's get started.

  • First, you'll need about three quarters pound of pasta.

  • One pound of shrimp that's been peeled,

  • medium to large shrimp is fine.

  • Couple tablespoons of olive oil.

  • Then for this amazing sauce, we're gonna need

  • some white wine, and you want that to be a drier white wine.

  • Then some butter, about six medium tomatoes,

  • some red pepper flakes to give it that extra zing,

  • some green onion, fresh green onion,

  • and then some fresh basil, and you can also use

  • a little bit of dry basil instead

  • if you don't have the fresh.

  • And then one clove of garlic.

  • We're gonna use just a half a cup of heavy cream,

  • and it's so creamy and good, it's unbelievable

  • that there's only half a cup in here.

  • And then we're gonna garnish with some cheese.

  • We're gonna start with cooking our pasta,

  • so bring a large pot of water to a boil,

  • and once it's at a boil add some salt to the water.

  • We've got about a half a tablespoon there.

  • And then drizzle the top with about

  • a tablespoon of olive oil.

  • And this really helps the pasta,

  • keeps it from sticking together.

  • So we're dumping about three quarters

  • of a pound of pasta in, and you can use

  • any kind of pasta you like.

  • You can use fettuccine, you can use spaghetti,

  • I like angel hair the most so that's what I'm using.

  • So just cook that according to the package instructions.

  • When it's done, you're gonna drain the pasta,

  • give it a quick rinse, and just set it aside

  • until you're ready to use it.

  • (sprayer running)

  • Let's get started on the shrimp.

  • This part's really quick and easy.

  • So, first you wanna preheat a large heavy-bottom skillet

  • over medium heat.

  • Then we're gonna season our shrimp

  • with a little bit of salt and pepper.

  • (salt shaking)

  • (pepper grinding)

  • Add two tablespoons of oil to your hot skillet.

  • Then add the shrimp and put those

  • in a single layer across the bottom of the pan.

  • Now shrimp are quick to make.

  • They only take about three minutes,

  • so you don't wanna overcook the shrimp

  • or they'll turn rubbery.

  • So toss the shrimp at least once in between,

  • and it should be done in about three minutes.

  • Once the shrimp are cooked, take them out of the pan

  • and set them aside.

  • Now let's move on to the creamy tomato sauce.

  • So start out by chopping your tomatoes.

  • We're gonna chop these into about dice.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Now we're gonna chop the basil and the green onion.

  • (chopping)

  • Now we're gonna add all the sauce ingredients,

  • except for the heavy cream,

  • just right into that hot skillet.

  • Start with four tablespoons of butter,

  • your chopped tomatoes, green onions, your basil.

  • Then we're gonna add in one pressed garlic clove,

  • your red pepper flakes, and your one cup of white wine.

  • And we're gonna cook that down 'til you have about

  • a fourth of a cup of liquid left in the pan.

  • (simmering)

  • (upbeat music)

  • Alright, you can see the liquid is almost evaporated.

  • Our tomatoes are nice and soft.

  • Now we can add the half a cup of heavy cream.

  • (simmering)

  • And stir in your cooked shrimp.

  • Now toss in your cooked pasta,

  • and just stir everything to combine.

  • Season with a little more salt and pepper if needed,

  • and then serve with some Parmesan.

  • Alright, and this is best hot, so serve it right away.

  • Oh goodness, this looks so good.

  • And I'm hungry, baby's hungry.

  • This little lady loves pasta, I already know it.

  • If she's anything like her mother.

  • (upbeat music)

  • 'Kay, we wanna add lots of shrimp.

  • This is, after all, shrimp pasta.

  • And then we're gonna top it with tons of cheese.

  • I like to get it on there while the pasta's still hot

  • so the cheese can melt onto there.

  • Then maybe some fresh tomatoes for garnish.

  • Add some fresh basil just to pretty it up a little bit.

  • And that's it.

  • Now the taste test.

  • Alright, we're gonna start with a little bit of pasta.

  • Mm.

  • Creamy but light.

  • And then the shrimp.

  • Oh, it's wonderful.

  • The white wine just really brings everything together.

  • You guys are gonna love this pasta.

  • It's no wonder it's one of the

  • most pinned recipes on my site.

  • Mm.

  • (laughs)

  • Course I had to include one of those.

  • Otherwise this video would be a little dry, huh? (laughs)

  • Mm.

  • Alright, I'm gonna go enjoy this.
