I think pasta should be a love language. Don’t you? It’s warm, filling, comforting, evokes good feelings, and is there when you need it, whether that’s for a romantic dinner, a meal large enough for the entire family, or a carb-load up to prepare for a run.
This One-Pot Creamy Shrimp Linguine is my favorite. It is an easy, straightforward recipe that requires minimal preparation and minimal dishes— a win-win! The entire meal can be made and ready to enjoy in less than 30 minutes.
Watch How to Make This Creamy Shrimp Linguine
Dairy-Free Shrimp Linguini
I use coconut cream to create the rich, creamy sauce and keeps this dish dairy-free. I also use Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Spread to replace the butter.
Want to Substitute the Coconut Cream?
Instead of using coconut cream, you can use heavy whipping cream (or half and half). You can also add grated parmesan cheese at the very end for even more flavorful.
What Kind Of Wine To Use For The Sauce?
Dry white wine is best to make this delicious creamy sauce. Wines like Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc work great! (So no Chardonnay or Moscato)
A Good Substitute For The White Wine
Add a fourth of a cup of vegetable broth or chicken broth instead of the white wine. Be sure to squeeze a lemon into the sauce after adding the cream for a more robust flavor.
Best Gluten-Free Pasta to Use
I truly believe the best gluten-free pastas are ones that taste just as good as regular pasta! Honestly, no one should bite into pasta and say, “Oh, this one is gluten-free”. In case that has happened to you, here are my favorite gluten-free pastas to use:
Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Spaghetti Pasta (the pasta I used for this recipe)
