Sauteed Shrimp over Pasta

Sometimes I want a big Sunday dinner feel with not a lot of work.  This is one of those meals.  I usually make this when I don’t feel like eating meat, but still want some protein with my pasta.  It is quick and delicious!

Sauteed Shrimp over Pasta


  • EVOO
  • Mrs. Dash Italian Medley (This is salt free and has great flavor.  I use it for  a lot of my favorite recipes)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 pound of large uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2-28 oz. cans of crushed tomatoes
  • 8 cloves of garlic, sliced
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 and 1/2 pounds of your favorite pasta(mine is rigatoni)


  1. Defrost your shrimp if you haven’t already.  Drain and pat dry with paper towels.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.  Add some crushed red pepper flakes if you like it spicy!  (You will be adding some to the sauce as well.)
  3. Season with Mrs. Dash.  I would say about 2 tablespoons.
  4. Mix gently to evenly coat all the shrimp.
  5. In a large saute pan heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
  6. Cook shrimp until pink tossing once or twice.
  7. Remove from heat and set aside.
  8. Prepare your simple crushed tomato sauce.
  9. Boil a big pot of salted water and prepare your pasta according to instructions on box.  Drain.
  10. Using a slotted spoon put the cooked shrimp in the heated sauce.
  11. Serve your pasta with sauce and shrimp.  Top with pecorino romano and enjoy!
