Creamy Shrimp Pasta

I found this recipe through Pinterest on It was very good! Just make sure that you give the sauce enough time to thicken completely otherwise it is a little too runny. Sorry that these pictures are not the best!

Serves 4 to 6

1 lb medium raw shrimp, shell removed
3/4 lb spaghetti pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
3 large tomatoes diced
1/4 cup green onion chopped
1/2 tsp dried basil
1 garlic clove, pressed
4 tbsp butter
1 cup DRY white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
parmesan to serve

Cook pasta according to box instructions.
Meanwhile, put green onions, basil, tomatoes, butter, and garlic in a large skillet. Season with pepper.
 Add white wine and cook over medium heat until most of the wine has evaporated. You want about 1/4 cup liquid remaining.
 Meanwhile in another skillet, lightly season the shrimp with salt and pepper and saute in 2 tbsp olive oil over medium/high heat, for about 3 minutes.

Once the sauce has mostly evaporated, stir in the cream and add the shrimp. Warm through for 2 minutes.

Toss the pasta with the sauce and shrimp. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.

From one newbie to another, enjoy!
