Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Shrimp

I have made a couple of different shrimp and pasta dishes, but this one was exceptionally delicious.  I think the marjoram really brought it to a new level.  I seasoned my shrimp with paprika, cayenne, garlic, black pepper and salt.  Simply just salt and pepper will do the trick though if you prefer to keep it a little on the milder side.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Shrimp

  • 1 pound large shrimp ~ peeled
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium tomato ~ diced
  • 1 Tbs fresh basil
  • 1/4 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp marjoram
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 – 6 o.z. dry pasta

Cook pasta according to package directions until desired tenderness.  Meanwhile in skillet heat oil over medium high heat.  Season shrimp as desired with salt and pepper; add paprika, garlic and cayenne if desired.  Saute about 5 minutes or until finished.

Add tomato, basil, pepper, and marjoram.  Cook an additional 2 – 3 minutes until heated through.

Serve over cooked pasta.  Sprinkle with goat cheese or parmesan if desired.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
