Garlic shallot shrimp pasta is a delicious and easy-to-make dish that is perfect for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion. The dish features succulent shrimp sautéed in garlic and shallots, then tossed with al dente pasta and finished with a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.
To make the dish, you will need to start by cooking the pasta according to the package instructions. While the pasta is cooking, you can sauté the garlic and shallots in a bit of olive oil until they are fragrant and slightly caramelized. Then add the shrimp and cook until they are pink and just cooked through.
Once the shrimp are cooked, add the cooked pasta to the pan with the shrimp and garlic shallot mixture, along with a bit of pasta water to create a sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated with the sauce and the shrimp are evenly distributed throughout. Finish the dish with a generous sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and a bit of chopped parsley for added flavor and color.
The dish can be customized to your liking by adding additional vegetables, such as cherry tomatoes or spinach, or by adjusting the level of spiciness with crushed red pepper flakes or hot sauce. It can also be made with gluten-free pasta or with zucchini noodles for a low-carb version.
