Day 28: Buttery Garlic Shrimp & Snow Peas with Sundried Tomato Pasta

Here is a very quick week night meal that doesn't sacrifice flavour or aesthetics. It is packed full of flavours; from the sweet, starchy noodles to the garlicky shrimp smothered in butter with bursts of  juicy tomato and crunchy snow peas... you'll want to try this one.

tomato flavoured pasta, enough for 4 people
1 lb shrimp, peeled
2 cups snow peas, halved
1 cup yellow roma tomatoes, halved
6 scallions, finely sliced
3-4 T cilantro, coarsely chopped
4-6 T butter
salt and pepper

1) Cook pasta in boiling water for about 9 minutes.
2) While the pasta is cooking, sauté shrimp and garlic in butter in a fry pan on medium high heat until cooked. The shrimp should be pink in colour.
3) Season with salt and pepper and add snow peas and scallions and cook for 1 minute.
4) Add tomatoes and cook for 1 minute.
5) Remove from heat and serve on top of pasta with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro.
