Shrimp Pasta Primavera is full of fresh veggies and shrimp in a creamy sauce flavored with Parmesan cheese and fresh basil. Everything can be made in one pot for easy clean-up. Great for a weeknight meal! This creamy, delicious pasta dish can be made in under 30 minutes.
To make this buttery and creamy Shrimp Pasta Primavera, start by melting some butter in a Dutch oven. You’ll want to go ahead and have your pasta cooked at this point and ready to add to the sauce.
Add all of your veggies that take a little longer to cook to the Dutch oven. I use broccoli, red bell pepper, onion, asparagus and mushrooms. But zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, eggplant, and sugar snap peas would work well too. This is a great recipe for using up whatever your garden produces.
Once they begin to get soft, add the peas, corn, chopped tomato, and garlic. Instead of using a plum tomato, try using cherry tomatoes.
Next add chicken broth, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Bring it to a boil and add the shrimp. They only need about 3 minutes to cook. Make sure you stir the mixture frequently so that they cook evenly.
Next stir in the Parmesan cheese, basil, and cooked pasta.
And there you have it. A wonderful, filling pasta meal with lots of fresh veggies and shrimp.
