Life would be so boring without pasta! Easy, yummy, nutritious, cheap… etc. It’s the food of everybody. That’s why I usually cook pasta for my guests, everybody likes it. This time I wanted to make something creamy and colorful, so I ended up with this creamy pepper shrimp pasta.
Seafood and pasta always make a great combination: mussels, scallops, squid and of course shrimps are commonly used by pasta chefs. Getting some shrimp is as easy as getting the pasta itself. Fresh or frozen, shrimps add a lot to the flavor of your recipe.
At first, I was planning to cook creamy shrimp and mushroom pasta but later I wanted it to be more colorful, so I decided to add some red and green peppers to my recipe. Addition of orange and yellow pepper would make it more colorful, but I didn’t want to go to market just for a few more colors.
Combination of cream, butter, shrimp and pepper flavors was great. But of course garlic made the magic touch for my creamy pepper shrimp pasta. It is a miraculous thing: you usually don’t see it, but its smell and flavor are always one step ahead the others, so you always feel it.
I mixed the pasta and other ingredients in the saucepan after both were cooked, but you don’t have to. You can serve the pasta to dishes or bowls, and then pour the creamy mixture over your pasta. This will make it creamier on the top and drier at the bottom. As I don’t like my last spoon be dry, I mixed everything.
No matter what you add to your sauce, garlic, butter and cream will make your recipe a tasty one. In this creamy pepper shrimp pasta recipe, shrimps gave a real oceanic smell and flavor. You can enjoy your meal with a glass of white wine!
