Shrimp and Olive Marinara over Galletti Topped with Parmesan

Shrimp and Olive Marinara over Galletti Topped with Parmesan

This meal was created at the request of my seven-year-old son.  He wanted pasta in a marinara sauce with black olives, kalamata olives, and shrimp topped with Parmesan cheese.  No other ingredients… just his favorites.  He picked the Galletti pasta because he thought it looked cool, thankfully, it was tasted good too.  I’ve never used this type of marinara  (Mario Batali) before but I am glad I did because it was really delicious & it made dinner very quick and easy. Great job to my son for creating this scrumptious creation! Simple food makes the best meals.

How to Shrimp and Olive Marinara over Galletti Topped with Parmesan

Clean the shrimp and remove the shell and de-vein if needed.  Rinse with cold water then pat dry.  Place the shrimp into a bowl and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and the minced garlic then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; toss to coat evenly. Place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to let the flavors mingle.

Cook the pasta in salted water, per instructions.  Drain.  Pour the marinara into a saucepan then add the black olives and kalamata olives; simmer until warmed through. Side Note: Don’t simmer the marinara with the olives for too long or the sauce will become salty.

When the pasta has nearly finished cooking, heat the remaining olive oil into a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the shrimp and cook for 3-4 minutes (depending on the size) then flip to cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until they are cooked through.

Ladle some pasta into a bowl followed by a spoonful of the olive marinara sauce.  Top with a few shrimp and some shaved Parmesan cheese and parsley. Serve.  Enjoy.

  1. wow, gotta say your son definitely knows his flavors… marinara, olives, parmesan, is a winner! A sever year old who loves olives? I love that! Love them too, I can’t get my 34 year old husband to eat them.

  2. How cool that your son created this pasta dish! I love Mario B.’s pasta sauce! I love the flavors in this dish, but sadly I can’t eat shrimp. I will try it without the shrimp…I’m sure it will still be delicious!
