Cherry Tomato Pasta and Shrimp uses up fresh end of summer tomatoes, just before it’s officially fall!

Over the summer, I used a recipe from the Run Fast Eat Slow cookbook and adapted it to use foods I had on hand and things Brian and I enjoy…that’s what inspired this recipe!

Cherry Tomato Pasta and Shrimp Tips

This dish comes together surprisingly quick!

By cooking the tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil in a skillet, they naturally burst and create the deliciously fresh sauce for Cherry Tomato Pasta and Shrimp.

I used Explore Cuisine’s Edamame Mung Bean Fettuccini, but you can use any pasta you love! Traditional pasta, brown rice pasta, quinoa pasta, etc.

If you are a cheese lover (like my husband), feel free to top the final dish with a touch of parmesan.

Is Shrimp Healthy?

I was explaining this dish to a friend recently, and they asked if eating shrimp was healthy. The short answer is, it depends, but here are a few more details.

If you are allergic to shrimp or shellfish, then don’t consume it and sub it out for something you aren’t allergic to in this dish.

Shrimp is composed of mostly protein and it also contains antioxidants like astaxanthin and nutrients like iodine. It is actually one of the few food sources of iodine, which is linked with brain and thyroid health. Shrimp also contains omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, which is great because we need to get both of these nutrients from the food we eat!

Overall, my opinion is that shrimp is a nutritious protein option for many people, but I always recommend eating a wide variety of foods so you can reap the benefits of all the different vitamins, minerals and nutrients different food contain.
