Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Fresh Basil: An easy weeknight dinner or date night recipe made using Golden Grain® that is filled with robust flavors and ready to please that someone special. This week, we are excited to feature the ‘Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Fresh Basil ‘ made by us from the ‘Pasta Matchmaker quiz‘. We are a huge pasta lover and it’s such a savior when we are pressed for time yet want to eat something delicious and filling. But many times I spend more time thinking ‘what’ recipe should I prepare rather than sitting with my bowl of hot yum. So when I came across the ‘Pasta Matchmaker quiz’, I literally jumped upon it.
The Pasta Matchmaker quiz showcases the flexibility of pasta and inspires us to add pasta to our menus as It’s designed to give a custom result based on what you’re in mood for or what occasion you are planning – like a weeknight dinner, date night, or a visit from the in-laws. You can always rely on Golden Grain® to be the ingredient that inspires the perfect dish for whatever the occasion may be. With all this information, I knew I was in great hands and took the quiz for a weeknight recipe (/date night) using seafood on a cloudy day. Once, I entered my choices, my result was this ‘Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Fresh Basil ‘ which was actually perfect as I had recently bought most of these ingredients from Lucky’s (grocery store) and the recipe is done in 20 minutes.
Here’s a glimpse of my recipe ingredients and the instructions are really easy to follow on the pasta maker site. While I made the pasta as per the package instructions and I also started sauteeing the ‘shrimp and fresh basil’ in a pan as making these two things simultaneous definitely saves up more time. Once the pasta was cooked and the shrimps were ready, I quickly tossed the two together and that’s it. It was all done. Here’s a quick video of the recipe (step by step procedure):
Infact, D loved the recipe so much as it was so smooth, buttery and so enhanced by the flavors of fresh basil. So, after trying this superhit recipe, I’m definitely going back to the Pasta Matchmaker quiz for another yummy recipe and the best past – it’s as per my mood and convenience. I definitely suggest you try the Pasta Matchmaker quiz asap and find your perfect pasta recipe along with step by step directions or put your own spin on a Golden Grain® classic recipe and submit for a chance to win prizes.
