Red Lobster Copycat Shrimp Pasta

Shrimp pasta is my favorite meal ever.  I must have a gazillion recipes posted for different variations.  Well, here is another one that is a copycat version of Red Lobster's Shrimp Pasta.

Although I make this dish often at home, I always order it when we go out for dinner.  What can I say?  I love shrimp pasta with a passion!

    • garlic cloves (I added more!)
    • lb shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed

    • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    • ounces pasta, cooked and drained


Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; reduce heat to low. Simmer until garlic is tender.

Add shrimp and cook over medium-low heat until opaque. Remove, reserve liquid in pan.

Add wine; cook over medium high heat for three (3) minutes, stirring constantly.

Add shrimp back in to sauce. Heat thoroughly.

Add remaining ingredients except pasta.

Put pasta in a large bowl and pour sauce over pasta; toss gently to coat.
