Olive Garden Shrimp Christopher

This is a perfect dish for those night when you have very little time to make dinner!


  • SAUCE:
  • 2 ounces fresh basil leaves (about 2 bunches)
  • 10 ounces softened butter (2 and 1/2 cubes)
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, plus additional for garnish
  • 1 tablespoons grated Romano cheese
  • 1 pound fresh linguine or angel hair pasta
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled


Remove any large stems from basil and wash leaves. Shake off excess water and dry leaves with paper towel. Place in a food processor, using the blade attachment process until finely chopped. Process in two batches if necessary to get uniformly chopped basil. Remove from processor and reserve. Place butter in small mixer bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip butter until pliable. Add garlic, salt, pepper, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, and basil; mix until well incorporated. Basil butter can be used immediately or stored covered in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. Cook pasta according to directions; drain well and keep warm. Melt basil butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp and saute just until done, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve over hot, cooked pasta. Pass the freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
