Shrimp Pasta Recipe: with cheese-onion sauce



Hello everybody and welcome! This is a shrimp pasta recipe with cheese-onion sauce. Now I am going to guide you step by step on how to make this delicious Italian dish. Make yourself at home and enjoy!

Before we start:
Many people like seafood and especially when it is well cooked and served with something like Italian pasta. Well, it is not strange because seafood is actually very tasty and has got the special aroma of the sea that no other food has.

However, this is not all. Seafood is also very healthy and very nutritious. It is a great source of protein and probably the main source of protein for people in Japan and many parts of Asia.

At the same time, Japanese people are well-known for their longetivity. Why do you think that's the case? Yes, it is because they eat seafood regularly. I don't mean that this is the only reason why those people live long, but it certainly contributes to that.

In fact, many studies have found a link between the consumption of seafood and lower levels of cancer and diseases!

As shrimp is a seafood as well, it has those beneficial qualities too.

So I thought that if shrimp is such a great food, why not share a shrimp pasta recipe with you. This is an Italian-style dish and, as most of the Italian dishes, it is very tasty.

To make it, we are going to use Italian patsa called fettuccine and small shrimp. We will top this with a creamy cheese-onion sauce to give it even a more delicate flavour.

This is, basically, the whole shrimp pasta recipe - it's simple and suitable for people with any level of cooking experience. Shrimp pasta is a very filling dish and it is perfect for lunch or any main meal of the day.

Pasta will provide you with carbohydrates, which will give you long-term energy to keep you up during the day. Shrimp will provide lean protein as well as many minerals. The sauce will add some more nutrients as well as flavour.

The key health benefits of shrimp:

  • boosts energy
  • helps build strong bones
  • helps promote prostate health
  • helps stabilize blood sugar levels
  • keeps skin, hair and nails healthy
  • helps fight cancer
So, as you can see, incorporating shrimp into your diet will give you a lot of health benefits. However, don't eat it too often. It is quite high in cholesterol (both good and bad) so eat it in moderation. Balance is the key.

For greatest health benefits consume different varieties of seafood.
