  • Recipe

    In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the lemon basil topping, and set aside. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Once hot, add olive oil and cook shrimp for 2-4 minutes per side or until slightly pink with an internal temperature of 145°F. Remove from pan and set aside. To the same skillet on medium-high heat, add olive oil and onion. Sauté 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, and cook an additional minute. Pour 2 cups of water into the skillet and fold in the uncooked pasta. Place the squash and asparagus on top, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer, not stirring, for 8-10 minutes. Once the pasta is al dente and veggies are cooked, fold in the shrimp and lemon basil topping. Garish as desired.

    For the roasted tomatoes on the vine garnish, preheat the oven to 400°F. Place RedRoyal® cherry-on-the-vine tomatoes in an oven safe dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until tomatoes begin to burst.
