2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
3/4 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/3 cup half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 cups trimmed arugula (about 2 ounces)
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain pasta in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add tomatoes and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add shrimp; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add pasta, reserved 1/2 cup cooking liquid, 1/2 teaspoon salt, half-and-half, and pepper; toss well. Cook over medium-low heat 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated and shrimp are done. Add arugula; toss well.
This recipe is so easy and yummy. I also make it with grilled chicken breasts in place of the shrimp. I sprinkle two chicken breasts with a little garlic salt and Italian seasoning and brush on some olive oil, or cooking spray, and just grill it on the bar b que. Cut the chicken into cubes or fairly thick slices.
