Greek Linguine with Shrimp

Greek Shrimp 3

This morning I was browsing through all the wonderful recipes I have pinned on Pinterest and realized how many of them I haven’t made yet! I have been drooling over this one from Closet Cooking for over a year and tonight had all the ingredients in my refrigerator. This recipe screams freshness – fresh shrimp, fresh herbs and vine-ripe tomatoes – it was time to dig in! I used fresh linguine from a local gourmet market which took it over the top! (I’m using too many exclamation points tonight – aren’t I?!?)

I varied it a bit from the original recipe and we had a delicious, healthy Sunday night supper! I’m really getting into making my own tomato sauce from fresh tomatoes and it’s going to be hard to cook with the bottled stuff again. Hmmm….maybe canning is in my near future?
