Pasta With Shrimp In Red Sauce

After a hard day work what I need most is a relaxed bath and a dinner that will take just 10 minutes to cook but it may seem like a queen’s treat. Last night when I am feeling like a queen… (ha ha) I open my pasta box and take few shrimps which are enjoying their stay at my refrigerator. They both have to finally come out and pair with each other, to make a delectable love story worth to watch and to taste. Pasta with shrimp in red sauce is something that can pamper your loneliness and you will again fall in love with yourself. Pasta with shrimp in red sauce is a easy healthy and delicious recipe not loaded with too many flavors, the simplicity of this pasta recipe is its beauty. I hope you will like it.

Pasta Rotelle (or any other)  1 big bowl  
Shrimp   8 to 10 ( peeled, deveined and washed )
Garlic paste   1/2 tea spoon
Tomato puree    1/2  cup
Water            1/2  cup
Dried Basil      1/2  tea spoon
Sugar        1/2  teaspoon (optional)
Salt and pepper     to taste
Vegetable oil     2 to 3 table spoon
Cracked black pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese


Cook pasta as per package instruction and keep aside. Now heat oil in a pan put the shrimp and a pinch of salt, fry until prawns are nearly cooked through. Remove prawns from pan and set aside. Add the garlic paste in this oil and stir then add the tomato puree, basil, salt pepper and sugar if using. Cook for 30 second then add water ( you can use fish stock if you want), simmer for a minute then add prawn and simmer for another minutes still the prawn are cooked through and sauce has thickened. Add pasta to pan and stir to combine.

Serve with cracked black pepper and Parmesan cheese.

Be Happy And Stay Healthy.
