Shrimp Pepper Pasta

Quick and delicious…

Summer has come to an end. Looking back, I definitely had a great summer and a lot of good memories to cherish. Today was a rainy day and the mighty Sun kept hiding among the clouds all day long. After coming home in the evening, my first thought was to make a hot soup or stew to keep myself warm. But I went with my second thought and made a quick Shrimp Pepper Pasta.

Last weekend, I had bought bell peppers of all colors. They were so pretty that I kept admiring their beauty and gorgeous colors. I cooked all the 4 different colored bell peppers along with shrimp. After seasoning them, added tomato sauce and combined with pasta. The pasta tasted so good with the peppers and the shrimp that I had to go for a second round. It was easy to make and unbelievably tasty.

Shrimp Pepper Pasta

Ingredients:

  • Pasta, linguine cooked in boiling water- half box
  • Shrimp, deveined and cooked- 20
  • Bell peppers of all colors: red, yellow, orange and yellow cut into wedges- 1 each of all colors
  • Italian seasoning- 1 tsp
  • Cumin powder- 1 tsp
  • Ground pepper- 1/4 tsp
  • Tomato sauce- 1 can or 14 fl oz
  • Olive oil- 1 tbsp
  • Black olives, canned for topping

Instruction

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling water after seasoning the water with salt, drain the water and keep the pasta aside.
  2. In a wok or large pot, add olive oil.
  3. To the oil add the cut bell peppers, saute till it turns slightly tender.
  4. Add the cooked shrimp with it and saute for a couple of minutes.
  5. Add the Italian seasoning, cumin powder and ground pepper.
  6. Combine well and saute for a minute.
  7. Now, add the tomato sauce and let come to a boil.
  8. Taste and add salt and more ground pepper if needed.
  9. Add the cooked pasta, combine well and cook for a minute.
  10. Remove from the heat and serve on a plate.
  11. If you prefer you could garnish the pasta with black olives and chopped parsley.

Tips:

  • I used precooked shrimp. If you are using uncooked shrimp, you could cook the shrimp separately in boiling water or cook along with the peppers.
