I have been making this since I was 20 yrs old. It can be eaten hot or cold. Add a little Parmesan on top. You can sub the shrimp with imitation crab. Works just as well. My time for prepping and cooking was one hour total. Because I have high blood pressure I do not add a lot of salt, so this could be a bit bland for some. It has a bit of a dry texture and to fix that just add extra olive oil to coat the pasta. Everything cooked in the pan is placed on top of the pasta and mixed until it is blended. As a side dish I usually have green beans or broccoli.
1Rinse and remove the shell from the shrimp. Pat dry the shrimp and set aside.
Cook the pasta according to the directions. While the pasta is cooking, prep the other ingredients.
2Slice the garlic and the green onions. Set aside, but do not mix them together. Dice the tomato and set aside as this will be added after everything has been cooked and combined.
3In a pan, melt the butter and add the olive oil. Sauté the garlic first until opaque and then add the green onions. Sauté for one minute. Add the shrimp and cook until pink or when done.
4Place the cooked pasta in a large bowl. Put the garlic, onions and shrimp on top of the pasta. Mix together until coated. Once plated, sprinkle the diced tomato on top of the pasta. It is ready to eat.
