Shrimp and Roasted Red Peppers Pasta

Another variation of one of my favorite meals . . . shrimp pasta.

I love the addition of roasted red peppers, whipping cream and white wine to make a different and delicious sauce.  Can't wait to try it!!

Although the recipe photo shows penne pasta, your favorite pasta would work as well and I think it would be awesome over garlicky white rice.

The recipe comes from the test kitchens of Better Homes and Gardens!


1 1/2 pounds fresh peeled and deveined medium shrimp
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup finely chopped onion (1 small)
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 12 ounce jar roasted red sweet peppers, drained and chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup snipped fresh basil
1 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese (4 ounces)
12 ounces dried pasta, cooked and drained


Rinse shrimp and dry with paper towels. Set aside. 

Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until butter is melted. 

Add onion and garlic . . . cook and stir for 1 to 2 minutes until onion is tender. 

Add shrimp and crushed red pepper . . . cook and stir for 2 minutes. 

Add roasted peppers and wine.

Bring to a boil and reduce heat. 

Simmer, uncovered, about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally (do not overcook shrimp!). 

Stir in cream. Return to boiling and reduce heat. 

Boil gently, uncovered, for 1 minute. Stir in basil.

Add shrimp mixture and cheese to cooked pasta, tossing gently to combine.
