Anyway, like I was saying, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it. There’s shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole. Pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried … and Cooper®-fied! Round out your repertoire of shrimp recipes with this creamy Shrimp and Herb Pasta. It’s the shrimp dish to end all shrimp dishes. That … that’s about it.


• 1 16-ounce box angel hair pasta
• 1/4 cup olive oil
• 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined*
• 4 cloves garlic, minced
• salt and pepper to taste
• 1/2 cup basil leaves, chopped
• 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
• 1/2 cup Cooper® Sharp White or Yellow cheese, shredded


• Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and cook the pasta until tender. Drain and set aside.

• In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir frequently until the shrimp is cooked. Add basil and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly.

• Add the heavy cream to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer.

• Add 1/4 cup of shredded Cooper® Sharp cheese and the cooked pasta and toss together until all ingredients are coated.

• Transfer your cheesy, shrimpy pasta to a plate or bowl, sprinkle with the remaining Cooper® Sharp and dig in!

• Want to really make it yours? Try substituting your favorite pasta, swapping out chicken for the shrimp, or adding chopped tomatoes to the finished dish.
