November 10, 2009 | One Dish Meals, Pasta & Pizza
My husband’s favorite meals are hands down pasta dishes that I put together for him. I read about a roasted pepper “raw” sauce on The Italian Dish (I love that blog, btw) and it inspired me to create my own version since I had a refrigerator full of red and yellow peppers from the farm.
I decided to top mine with shrimp because, well, just because!
Spaghetti with Roasted Peppers and Pesto Shrimp
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, sliced
4 sweet peppers, red or yellow, roasted and peeled
2 small tomatoes, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons pesto sauce
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
8 ounces spaghetti, cooked and drained
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
Parmesan cheese, grated, to taste
Heat olive oil in a small skillet and add sliced garlic; cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a food processor and add peppers and tomatoes; pulse several times until roughly chopped, but not pureed. Salt and pepper to taste and set aside. Heat pesto in a large skillet and add shrimp; cook until just barely cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat. Toss cooked spaghetti with pepper sauce and divide between four plates. Top each with several cooked shrimp, then sprinkle with pine nuts and Parmesan cheese to taste.
