A note about serious food allergies

Creamy rich Alfredo sauces and twirly linguine aren't the only sauce and pasta that goes well with the shrimp. Tubular (in both ways) rigatoni and zesty tomato sauce also augment these fine little fellas with amazing flavor. One thing cream and tomato shrimp have in common: garlic bread is the perfect side carb for both.

  1. 1

    Cook the Pasta

    Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside. While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare Ingredients and Bake Garlic Bread

    Core tomato and cut into ¼" dice. Mince garlic. Combine half the garlic (reserve remaining for sauce) and softened butter in a mixing bowl. Halve roll and place roll on prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Top cut side evenly with garlic-butter mixture. Bake in hot oven until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. While garlic bread bakes, cook shrimp.

  3. 3

    Cook the Shrimp

    Pat shrimp dry. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to hot pan and cook until opaque and shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from burner. Transfer shrimp to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Start the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook shrimp to medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add tomato and remaining garlic to hot pan. Stir occasionally until tomato has softened and garlic is fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Stir in flour until no dry flour remains. Stir in ¾ cup pasta cooking water, marinara, cream cheese, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper until completely combined. Bring to a simmer. If too thick, add additional pasta cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

  5. 5

    Finish Sauce and Finish Dish

    Once simmering, add shrimp, half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish), pasta, and a pinch of salt, if desired, to hot pan. Stir occasionally until combined and heated through, 1-2 minutes. Remove from burner. Plate dish as pictured on front of card, garnishing pasta with remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
