Shrimp and Tomato Blast!

At my house, shrimp is "fast food"!  I really enjoy throwing together quick pasta or stir-fry meals using big shrimp. The tomatoes from our CSA have been so colorful and delicious, I've been putting them in many things. You'll see another post in a few days about other ways to use those tomatoes! This recipe is really easy! I don't heavily sauce recipes like this one. I want the fresh vegetable flavors to come blasting through!

The ingredients included chopped onions, chopped green pepper, a few cherry tomatoes sliced in half ... a few 16 count shrimp and a couple cups of cooked pasta. I quickly fried the green peppers and onions in a little olive oil ... and let the onions caramelize. I added the shrimp and turned them just once. It just takes a few minutes for them to be done. Then I dropped in the tomatoes and let them burst in the sizzling olive oil. I stirred in a Tablespoon of tomato paste and about a cup of the cooking liquid from the pasta, which made a nice light coating for everything. A couple grinds of fresh pepper and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese ... and the meal was complete!

I'll be sharing this post with some of the parties listed in my side bar, but stick around my home page before you move on. You might find another recipe you like!
