Keto Creamy Tuscan Shrimp Pasta


  • Author: Natalie
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound wild raw shrimp (I love Trader Joe’s Argentinian Red Shrimp)
  • 1/2 a jar sundried tomatoes in oil (tomatoes and oil)
  • 3/4 cup canned coconut cream
  • 2 9-ounce boxes of hearts of palm linguine
  • 6-ounces organic spinach
  • kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  2. Thaw the frozen shrimp in a bowl of cool water. Then press out all moisture using a paper towel or dish towel.
  3. To your warm cast iron skillet, add in half the jar of sundried tomatoes (tomatoes and oil), plus the 3/4 cup canned coconut cream. Cook, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes until the sauce reduces and thickens.
  4. Add in the thawed shrimp, sprinkle on some kosher salt, and cook for 2 minutes. Then flip.
  5. Open the 2 bags of hearts of palm linguine. I love to pour it on to a few paper towels and squeeze out any extra moisture so it doesn’t water down my sauce. Add the hearts of palm linguine to the shrimp and sauce, tossing to coat completely.
  6. Add in the bag of spinach, and toss frequently until the spinach is just wilted. Season with kosher salt to taste.
  7. Transfer to a plate and serve warm.
  8. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days.
  9. As always, lots of tips, FAQs and substitution info in the Recipe Notes below!

Notes

Shrimp: Trader Joe’s Argentinian Red Shrimp is my favorite because it’s wild caught, already has the shell + tail removed, is deveined, plus tastes delicious! But any shrimp would do.

Protein: This would also be amazing with italian pork sausage, chicken sausage, chicken thighs, chicken breast, etc.

Coconut Cream: I love using canned coconut cream because it has the most amount of fat, and gives me the thickest sauce. You barely taste the coconut once it cooks. If you’re ok with dairy, you could use heavy cream instead! Another great option would be original flavor Nutpods.

Hearts of Palm Linguine: Hearts of palm is my favorite keto friendly pasta because it doesn’t get watery when cooking, and holds up really well. You could also use zucchini noodles. Or this would be great served over cauliflower rice! I also love Natural Heaven hearts of palm pasta (code TASTESLOVELY for 15% off)

Reheating: I would reheat this in a cast iron skillet, or microwave for 3 minutes.
