You will need the following for this Shrimp with Linguine dish:

  • 1 lb. Linguine
  • 1 lb. Shrimp
  • 1 T. Butter
  • 2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Large Shallot, Chopped
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 1/4 c. White Wine
  • 28 oz. Pureed Tomato Sauce
  • Red Pepper Flakes, as much or as little as desired
  • Salt and Pepper, as much or as little as desired
  • 1/4 c. Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 1-2 T. of Flour



To prepare this dish, you will need to start by boiling a pot of water for the pasta. Add the pasta and cook according to package.

While the pasta is cooking, add butter and the extra virgin olive oil in a sauce pan. Add the shallots and garlic and sauté for about 3-4 minutes.

Season the shrimp with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Add the shrimp to the sauce pan and cook them for about 2-3 minutes or until pink. Add the wine and bring to a boil. Add the tomato puree and lower the heat to medium to low heat for about about 10 minutes.

*If the sauce gets too thin, add 1-2 Tablespoons of flour to thicken it up.

Once done, place the pasta on a plate, pour the sauce on top of the pasta and sprinkle with the chopped parsley. Serve immediately.
