Christmas confetti pasta is essential shrimp fettuccine but Christmas confetti pasta just sounds more fun! I used Barilla fettuccine pasta and picked up all ingredients from my local HEB.
Christmas Pasta Recipe Step-By-Step
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil
Start by bringing a pot of water to a boil.
2. Chop ingredients
Chop red bell pepper, green bell pepper, onions, and garlic. Set aside.
3. Boil pasta
Salt the water as salty as the sea! Add Barilla fettuccine pasta and cook for 12 minutes until al dente.
4. Saute veggies
Bring a pan to medium-high heat and add olive oil. Add chopped garlic and onions, and then add red bell pepper and green bell peppers. Sautee for a couple of minutes.
5. Cook shrimp
In the same pan with the veggies, cook shrimp for 2 – 3 minutes until cooked through.
6. Add pasta
Add fettuccine noodles to the pan with shrimp and veggies.
Tip: Set aside a cup of pasta water. Add pasta water as needed.
7. Add butter
My secret to pasta is always finishing with a couple of pats of butter!
