It has been a while. Not because any lack of cooking or eating out, but because we moved. And like everyone who has gone through a move, you know what it means. When on top of this you also move countries, it can get quite hectic and chaotic … we lived without plates and cutlery for a few days. But things are slowly getting back to a ‘new’ normal, in the new house, which in true Belgian tradition is very tall, very narrow, and has a lot of stairs. The cooking and blogging goes on floor 0 and floor 4 so a lot of exercise in between, which means burning off more calories than before – guilt free eating! Amongst the dishes cooked in the new house (warming up take-away does not count!) was shrimp pasta. Something quick, something easy and that did not require a lot of cooking tools. One pot, one chopping board, another pot. A very easy dish but so delicious after hours of work and putting together furniture.
Shrimp pasta (for 2)
500gr pasta – we used orechietti pasta
500gr shrimp (we like our shrimps!)
1 can tomato puree
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
chopped flat leaf parsley
Of course, taking the ingredients, you can understand how easy it is to cook this dish. Simply boil the pasta al-dente, fry the shrimps with the crushed garlic in some olive oil, add the tomato puree and then mix with the pasta. Sprinkle some flat leaf parsley and parmesan on top. Serve. And enjoy. Ideally after you have just put together a 2.50m high wardrobe and you’ll think this is the best dish you have ever eaten. Ever!
