Shrimp, Spaghetti and Cheese Recipe
  • Warm goat cheese to room temperature so it will easily melt when ready to combine with spaghetti.
  • Begin cooking spaghetti. While spaghetti is cooking, prepare all other ingredients so they can be ready when spaghetti is finished cooking.
  • Clean fresh shrimp (if they have not been pre-cleaned), removing shells, tails, and deveining. Sauté garlic cloves in olive oil for 1 to 2 minutes. Add shrimp to the garlic and cook until the shrimp has a rosy pink coloring on each side.
  • Add olives, sun dried tomatoes and basil to the garlic and shrimp mixture, allowing the added ingredients to warm slightly.
  • When the spaghetti is finished cooking, remove from heat and let drain in a colander or strainer briefly.
  • While still very hot, place spaghetti on a serving plate or bowl and add cheese immediately into the hot spaghetti so the cheese can be melted amongst the noodles and dispersed throughout to serve as a sauce. Remove shrimp and other ingredients from heat, serving over the pasta.
