  • 1 lb pasta
  • 1/2 lb frozen shrimp, thawed
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Splash heavy cream
  • Splash vermouth
  • To taste, Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • 1 Cook the pasta, but drain when it is al dente, or slightly undercooked. Place the butter in a pan and add the shrimp and garlic.
  • 2 Sauce for a minute, then add the vermouth and simmer for another couple minutes (the alcohol will cook off but the flavor will remain).
  • 3 Add the frozen peas, splash of heavy cream and salt and pepper. Stir and add the pasta, then toss to combine.
