I spend about a month every year on the Italian coast and my favorite thing is always the food. The rest of Italy has great food as well, but the fresh seafood from the coastal regions is absolutely divine. I probably make a Ligurian dish once a week during the summer months if I’m not traveling too much.

Linguini With Shrimp Ingredients

400 grams Dry Linguini Pasta

15-20 Rock Shrimp; fresh or frozen and defrosted

1 20 oz Canned Whole Tomatoes

2 cloves Garlic; minced

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp Oregano; chopped

1 tsp Basil; chopped

Salt and Pepper; to taste

Parsley; garnish

Parmesan Cheese; to taste

Linguini With Shrimp Instructions

1. Start by boiling a pot of heavily salted water. If you bought fresh shrimp you will have to boil those two, so make that two pots of boiling water.

2. In a saucepan on high heat add the olive oil. When it gets hot add the minced garlic for about 10 seconds then dump the entire can of whole tomatoes on the pan. Crush with a fork or a potato masher. Add salt and pepper.

3. Bring the heat down to a simmer and add the oregano and basil. At this point at the dry linguini to one pot, and the shrimp to the other. The linguini should take 7 minutes for al dente and the shrimps should take 2-3.

4. Remove the shrimps first. Peel them and add them to the simmering sauce. When the pasta is done take 2 tbsp of pasta water and add it to the sauce. Strain the pasta. Place the noodles in the pan and toss to coat. Taste for seasoning and if everything is good, add some desired parmesan and your linguini with shrimp is ready to serve. Oh, can’t forget the parsley garnish for a nice pop of color on an otherwise red dish.
