One Pot Thai Shrimp Pasta


One Pot Thai Shrimp Pasta

St. Patrick’s Day is over, and now we have about a month until Easter.  I haven’t really thought about any Easter ideas to share with you.  Do you have any requests?  We usually have ham and potatoes for Easter, the only thing that ever changes is the dessert.  And sometimes it just gets skipped  because of all the candy that is around.  So if you want any ideas, let me know, so I can start working on them for you!

One Pot Thai Shrimp Pasta

In the meantime, I am here with an amazing one pot dinner.  An Italian version of this One-Pot Pasta has been making the rounds on the internet lately.  It has been done enough, I wanted to do an Asian version.  The concept is pretty crazy.  You put the liquid, the pasta, and all the other add-ins together in one pot.  Then you just cover, bring to a boil, and cook for about 10 minutes.  The pasta absorbs all the liquid as it cooks, and it comes out perfectly cooked with a creamy sauce.  Kind of magical really.

You do have to be a little careful what kind of pasta you use.  They all cook at different times, so you will want to use linguini or spaghetti or something else that cooks in about 10 minutes.  For a Thai version I added peanut butter, soy sauce, ginger, and a few other typical Asian ingredients.  I was a little nervous about the shrimp, but it worked out beautifully.  The dish was creamy, with lots of great flavor, and the shrimp was perfectly cooked.  I can not wait to try this again!  Dinner is ready in about 15 minutes, what more can you ask for on a busy night.

    This recipe sounds GREAT, and so easy! Question — I don’t care much for the taste of peanut butter. Does the finished dish taste a lot like it? I can imagine the PB adds to the lovely finished consistency. Maybe you can suggest an alternate ingredient? Many thanks!!

    • You get a hint of PB flavor, but it is not what you think of when you think of traditional PB. You could try SunButter or maybe Almond Butter in its place, but I am not 100% sure what it would do to the taste. I am sure it would be good, just not exactly the same. Let me know what you try!

  2. We did something similar last week!!! So so good!

  3. That looks so good; a perfect bowl of comfort and warmth for a cold day like we’re having right now.

  4. What a delicious take on the one-pot pasta! I’ve seen these popping up everywhere and I think it’s time I finally try it! Love this Thai version!

  5. Oh, now this is totally my kind of weeknight meal! We definitely love spicing things up with Thai flavors, and I love how easy this pasta dish is!

  6. I am definitely doing this on Friday. thank you!

  7. I love the sound of this too!
    Will try it as soon as I buy some prawns!!.

  8. OOooooh! I love the Thai spin on the one-pots!

  9. I love everything about this meal…can’t wait to make it! Pinned! :)

  10. Do you think you could make this with chicken? I’m not the biggest fan of shrimp…

    • You definitely could! I think if you cut your chicken into small enough pieces, the cook time and instructions would be the same. Just check that the chicken is fully cooked before serving. Enjoy!

  2. […] This creamy, peanutty pasta takes about 20 mins from prep to table. While the recipe itself is great, we suggest substituting the peanut butter with your own homemade peanut butter or one without any added sugar. It could use with more veggies as well, so don’t be shy about adding in some oyster mushrooms, chopped up baby corn, onions, as well as some long beans. Get recipe here. […]
