Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

By: Lisa Nichols
“Fresh tomatoes and spinach, fresh herbs, and fresh mozzarella combine with shrimp and fettuccine for an easy summer dinner.”





8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
3 cloves garlic
1/2 sweet onion, cut into wedges
3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 medium tomatoes, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup spinach leaves
1 pound cooked shrimp – peeled and deveined
8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, diced

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta, and cook for 8 minutes, or until tender. Drain.

In the container of a food processor, combine the garlic, onion and oregano. Pulse until finely chopped. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion mixture; cook and stir until fragrant and almost golden. Mix in the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Simmer for about 5 minutes while the pasta is cooking, stirring occasionally.

Mix in spinach until it wilts, then just before the pasta is done, stir in the shrimp. Cook until heated through. Toss with pasta in a large serving bowl, and mix in mozzarella cheese.

Pasta with Sausage, Artichokes and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
adapted from Confections of a Foodie Bride (who scaled it from Giada’s Family Dinners)

serves 4

total time:  approximately 25 minutes

1/2 cup drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, sliced, 2 tablespoons of oil reserved
1/2 pound Italian sausage
8 oz. artichoke hearts, quartered
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 1/4 cup chicken broth
8 oz. short cut pasta
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley, chopped
8 oz. mozzarella, cubed
salt and freshly ground pepper

Heat the oil reserved from the tomatoes in a heavy large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausages and cook until brown, breaking up the meat into bite-size pieces with a fork, about 8 minutes. Transfer the sausage to a bowl. Add the artichokes and garlic to the same skillet, and saute over medium heat until the garlic is tender, about 2 minutes. Add the broth and sun-dried tomatoes. Boil over medium-high heat until the sauce reduces slightly, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta in boiling water until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring often, about 8 minutes. Drain the pasta (do not rinse). Add the pasta, sausage, Parmesan, basil, and parsley to the artichoke mixture. Toss until the sauce is almost absorbed by the pasta. Stir in the mozzarella. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Serve, passing the additional Parmesan cheese alongside.
