I’m one of those people who could probably eat seafood every night of the week. I’m a true seafood lover and I never grow tired of incorporating fish or shrimp into any one of my favorite recipes. This Mediterranean Shrimp and Pasta recipe is one of those recipes. I love the flavors in Mediterranean cooking and this easy to make, healthy pasta and shrimp recipe is one I’m sure you’ll love too.

This fabulous dish combines buttery pasta with oven roasted tomatoes, herbs and Feta cheese, salty Kalamata olives and plump, juicy shrimp. It’s a meal you will see on my dinner table on a regular basis.

With the availability of frozen seafood, this Mediterranean Shrimp and Pasta can be enjoyed any time of the year.

I’ve recently partnered with World Port Seafood to share with you a few of their seafood products and the beautiful Red Argentinean Shrimp found in this easy recipe is one of their many products.

Red Argentinean Shrimp | Mediterranean Shrimp and Pasta For One | One Dish Kitchen

Red Argentinian Shrimp cook quickly, actually they cook faster than more common shrimp. They’re big and sweet and robust. Many people say that the flavor reminds them of lobster.

I really love the fact that I can use the amount of shrimp I need and keep the rest in the freezer for next time. Having frozen shrimp and seafood on hand is a huge convenience, especially when you’re cooking for one or two people.

This delightful recipe comes together quickly.

Step 1

Slice plum tomatoes in half lengthwise, drizzle a little olive oil over the tops and sprinkle each tomato with seasonings, salt and pepper. To the pan, add chopped garlic and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes and roast the tomatoes in the oven until they become soft and are slightly browned.

Roasting brings out a wonderful flavor in the tomatoes and while they’re in the oven, you can make the pasta and cook the shrimp.

I used Casarecci pasta in this recipe because I love it’s long, twisted shape. Feel free to use your favorite pasta in its place.

Step 2

After the tomatoes roast in the oven, spoon them into the cooked pasta along with the beautiful cooked shrimp. Finally, add in the Kalamata olives and the Feta cheese and enjoy.
