    I am finding that people often seem to think shrimp meals are difficult to cook. That could not be further from the truth. For example, in this recipe, cooking the shrimp only takes 2-3 minutes.

    The rest is as easy as boiling the pasta and sauteeing the other ingredients. All you need is a pot for pasta and a pan for assembling and you are in business.

    The olive oil, tomato, and basil combination give this shrimp pasta recipe a Caprese-like flavor, which is both light and refreshing. The shrimp adds a nice sweetness and a bit of bite.

    You can easily use smaller shrimp if you like. To save even more on time, purchase your shrimp already shelled and deveined. Tails are 100% optional, but I typically take them off before I cook so your guests won’t have to deal with them later.

    Tomato Basil Shrimp Pasta makes a quick and easy shrimp meal any time of the year but I think the flavors are particularly nice during the later summer months or even in the fall when the weather is starting to turn.
