Ingredients
  

Shrimp, Tomato, and Basil Pasta

  • 500 Grams spaghetti noodles
  • 2 tablespoons Garlic chopped
  • 500 Grams Shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 500 Grams Cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 and 1/4 cups white wine
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • extra virgin olive oil for drizzling
  • 200 Grams feta cheese crumbled

Instructions
 

  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  • Make the sauce: Sauté garlic in olive oil until fragrant. Add shrimp; cook until pink.
  • Add cherry tomatoes and cook until skins crack. Pour in white wine and simmer until liquid is reduced to half. Season with salt and pepper.
  • As soon as spaghetti is done, drain using a colander. Do not wash with cold water. Set aside a little of the cooking water. After draining, immediately place noodles in sauce; toss.
  • Tear basil leaves by hand and add to the pasta. Pour in reserved pasta water as well.
  • Turn off fire and drizzle extra virgin olive oil on top.7  Transfer to a platter and top with crumbled feta cheese.
    EVOO tip: We can never stress enough the importance of using a really, really good brand of olive oil. Believe us, it makes a difference. The last drizzling of extra virgin olive oil on top of the pasta adds a subtle fruity flavor that will make the dish stand out even more.
