Have you experienced an intense craving of a certain dish, dine at the nearest restaurant near your office or home and end up disappointed? Disappointed that you felt short-changed for paying a hefty price but the taste was not even near the vicinity of saying the dish was good.

Heck, you can’t even say it was okay!

I’ve had several occasions when I dine out, mostly to eat pasta dishes and end up disappointed. The promise of an authentic Italian cuisine, were all just a promise. Of all the many restaurants I have been to, I only have about five of my favorite restaurants offering good and I mean delicious pasta dishes but some that makes you go over your daily budget.

Now if I have a pasta craving and needs to stay on a budget, I whip up an easy to create pasta dish. Whether I will devour this with my family or bring home to work to share with my colleagues, it is comforting to know that the dish I created won’t fail me.

Allow me to share with you this Easy Recipe : Creamy Shrimp Linguine Pasta, using the freshest shrimp you can find, this delicious pasta recipe is a sure winner. No disappointments. No promises. Just simply delicious!

Cooking Tips :
This simple and easy recipe is a sumptuous pasta dish as long as you use quality and fresh ingredients of shrimp, onions, garlic, dill and parmesan cheese.

Opt for freshly grated parmesan cheese for a more cheesy goodness.

When cooking pasta according to package directions, I usually turn off heat 3 minutes before the actual indicated time. Continue to submerge pasta in boiled water (where you cooked it) for 3 to 5 more minutes or until pasta turned white but not soggy. Drain then pour ice-cold water. This helps cooked pasta to remain al dente.

Black Olives and Capers are available in supermarkets in small bottles but with this recipe, you will retain more than 2/3. You can still create more similar pasta dishes and pizza with black olives. Just store them properly and check the expiration date.

If you are not growing your own pot of dill, those that are available in supermarkets are more than what this recipe calls for. You can use dill in a variety of seafood dishes including this delicious appetizer Nutty Shrimp Lettuce Boats here
