1 (12 ounce) box
Barilla® Tri-Color Penne
extra virgin olive oil, divided
shrimp, peeled and deveined
grape tomatoes, halved
salt to taste
black pepper to taste
coarse bread crumbs
basil, thinly sliced
It was good, but I had to improvise on several things. The recipe directions are not very clear. I used 5 cloves of garlic because we love garlic, I sauted a tbsp of garlic with the shrimp and added a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper to spice it up, I also had to add another tbsp of olive oil to the shrimp so it would not dry out. Option 2- Reduce to half?
What temperature should we place the oven at and how long to cook option 4 for people that are not very good cooks- I did 5 minutes at 400 for the bread crumbs. I tossed everything in one big bowl. Turned out really good, the basil makes this recipe.
Great, easy recipe. I didn't have fresh garlic on hand, so I just used a tablespoon of minced. Super easy to make. I did check other reviews before hand to know how long to bake the bread crumbs since that wasn't mentioned in the recipe, I would've given this a 5 star rating otherwise.
