Recipe for family meals :

Solo Barbecue Flavored Shrimp and Pasta

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "This will make a full meal for one person, or with a salad, make a light lunch for two. Try eating this with a spoon so that all the barbecue sauce in the bottom of the bowl can be enjoyed".


5 ounces of cooked baby shrimp
6 ounces dry pasta
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped onions
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup tomato sauce or ketchup
1/3 cup vinegar
1/3 cup bourbon

  • Add the pasta to 2 quarts of salted boiling water, stir, and cook until done (about 10 minutes).
  • Thaw the shrimp under cold water and drain.
  • While the pasta is cooking, put the olive oil and butter in a frying pan, and when the butter is melted, add the onion.
  • When the onion is nearly transparent, add tomato sauce, vinegar, bourbon, and basil.
  • Keep simmering on low heat until the pasta is nearly done.
  • Add the shrimp and tomato, stir and then add the drained cooked pasta.
  • Stir, and cook over low heat for another minute, and pour into a shallow bowl.
