Linguine and Shrimp
Linguine e Gamberetti

by James Belardo

Adding shrimp or prawns to the classic Aglio e Olio pasta sauce creates a wonderfully delicious and classic variation.

1.5 pounds shrimp
2-4 cloves of garlic (depending on size of cloves)
2-4 anchovies (in oil, minced)
3/4 cup cherry tomatoes (halved)
6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup white whine (Pinot Grigio)
Italian flat-leaf parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) (optional)
Lemon Juice 1/2 lemon

Pasta (suggested)
Linguine, Spaghetti or Spaghettini

Suggested Toppings and Garnish
Italian-style seasoned breadcrumbs and a sprig or two of Parsley

1. Cooking your pasta (al dente) – just before you add the pasta to the salted boiling water you can begin making the sauce.

2. Heat 4 tbsp olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat, add the minced garlic and anchovies. Cook until color of the garlic begins to brown (be careful not to burn the garlic, it will turn bitter).

3. Add the shrimp and let cook until the translucency of the shrimp fades into a more opaque white.

6. When the pasta is almost ready, take a bit of the pasta water and add to the sauce pan. This will help the sauce adhere to the pasta better. Combine the pasta with the sauce in the sauce pan.
