SHRIMP VODKA PASTA

SHRIMP VODKA PASTA
DINNER AT HOME

Made a really delicious Shrimp Vodka Pasta for dinner.  This was really good dish that I highly recommend you try at home.  The recipe is fast and easy.  I started by chopping up lots of garlic.  Used half to marinate the shrimp and half to sauté and add to sauce.  Marinated the shrimp in chopped garlic and some Italian Salad Dressing that we had in the refrigerator.  Chopped up some shallots and sautéed them in olive oil with the remaining garlic.  Added 1/3 cup of good vodka and cooked for little over one minute.  Added Bertolli Tomato and Basil Sauce along with some heavy creme, salt, pepper and fresh thyme.  Let the sauce simmer on low while I cooked the shrimp in a separate pan.  Made sure that I did not overcook the shrimp as they were to finish cooking in the sauce.  Added the shrimp to the sauce and served with spaghetti.  This was restaurant quality good.  My wife said she would order this in a restaurant over and over again.

Note:  You really do not need to marinate the shrimp.  There is enough flavor in the sauce if you don't have the extra time.
