“No one else in my family likes shrimp, so I have to make this ALL for myself. It’s so good and worth it.”
2 lbs medium shrimp – peeled and deveined
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup red onions – finely diced
3 cloves garlic – minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 cup white wine – divided
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Black pepper – to taste
1/4 cup parsley – finely chopped
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 lb linquini noodles – cooked and drained
1) In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add shrimp, onions, and garlic. Saute until shrimp is cooked (no longer clear.)
2) With heat still on medium, add 1/2 cup white wine. Stir well, scraping bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in tomato paste. Continue stirring to dissolve tomato paste.
