Simple Shrimp with Tomato and Angel Hair
This shrimp was one of those things you grab at the store on an impulse, without any real purpose in mind. Sometimes pre-cooked is an easy way to get us eating seafood. Then, if I am making something that Abel-son might be unsure of, I usually mix it with pasta. Because... really, kids love noodles. Mix in a quick and cheap sauce: saute garlic in olive oil and add fresh tomatoes and salt, and voila! And to this I added a few more things I had in the fridge.
By now there is a common theme on this blog. Garlic. :)
Saute 2 cloves garlic chopped in 3 T olive oil plus some crushed red pepper, just cook until tender.
Add 2-3 chopped fresh tomatoes and cook until they are soft. Smash with potato masher or glass bottom until smoother sauce is formed.
Add 1/2 c sour cream about 1/4 c parmesan and mix until smooth and bubbly
1 T dry sweet basil
salt and lots of pepper
1/2 lb cooked angel hair, and I added the cooked shrimp in when the pasta needed a couple min left to cook in order to warm it up.
