Garlic Butter Penne with Shrimp- made with simple ingredients like butter, garlic, mushrooms and sun dried tomatoes.. So simple, so flavorful! This easy pasta recipe is our favorite weeknight dinner. I love to serve this with home-made salad or some roasted vegetables. —Amy
For the shrimps: Heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Toss in shrimps and sprinkles with salt, pepper, garlic powder. Cook until pink, about 2 minutes. Remove shrimps and set aside.
Pulse sun-dried tomato in a food processor a few times until smooth.
For the garlic butter sauce: In the same pan, add a few teaspoon of olive oil, add in butter and garlic and fry until garlic is fragrant.
Toss in the mushrooms and cook for about 30 seconds. Add in sun-dried tomatoes, broth and simmer on low heat until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Turn off heat and add back the cooked shrimps to combine.
To serve: Mix garlic butter sauce on top of pasta. Serve on top of Parmesan and maybe a glass of wine if you're feeling fancy! Enjoy.
