Recipe Ingredients for Penne with Shrimp and Herbed Cream Sauce

16 oz Penne
1 1tsp Olive Oil
16 oz Shrimp, Mixed Species
4 serving Garlic Cloves
0.75 tsp Salt, Table
0.5 tsp Pepper, Black
15 oz Tomatoes Whole Peeled
0.5 cup leaves, whole Basil, Fresh
4 oz Parsley
8 oz Wine, Table, White
2.66 oz Chopped In Clam Juice Clams
0.75 cup, whipped Cream, Fluid, Heavy Whipping
4 oz Grated Parmesan Cheese

Recipe Directions for Penne with Shrimp and Herbed Cream Sauce

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain the pasta and set aside.

  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper. Cook, stirring frequently until the shrimp turn pink and is cooked through, about 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the shrimp and set aside.

  3. Add the tomatoes, 1/4 cup basil, 1/4 cup parsley, and the red pepper flakes. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add the wine, clam juice, and heavy cream. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 7 to 8 minutes until the sauce thickens. Add 1/4 cup of the Parmesan, the cooked shrimp, the cooked pasta, and the remaining herbs. Toss together until all ingredients are coated. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

  4. Transfer the pasta to a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve immediately.
