Step 1: MISE EN PLACE

Read through entire recipe before getting started. Wash and dry all produce. Bring 4 quarts salted water to a boil in a large pot. Trim string beans and cut in half. Slice cherry tomatoes in half (see Chef’s Tip). Mince or grate garlic. Remove basil stems and discard; chiffonade leaves. Remove shrimp from package; remove tail, rinse, and drain. Toss shrimp in a small mixing bowl with garlic, 1 Tbsp. oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Step 3: COOK THE SHRIMP

Heat 1 tsp. oil in a large sauté pan on medium heat. Add shrimp to hot pan (use a spatula to get all garlic and oil into pan with shrimp). Sear shrimp in pan for 2-3 minutes on each side, until opaque and firm. The USDA recommends cooking shrimp to an internal temperature of 145ºF.

Step 4: FINISH THE PASTA

Deglaze pan with white wine, scraping any cooked-on pieces off the bottom of the pan. Add cherry tomatoes and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Stir in butter until melted, then mix string beans and pasta with shrimp to warm, about 1 min. Remove from heat and stir in basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 6: CHEF'S TIP: Slicing small tomatoes

When slicing a lot of cherry or grape tomatoes at once, it makes the process easier if you use a plastic lid to hold multiple tomatoes at a time. Then use a sharp knife to slice parallel with the table or cutting board and cut through multiple tomatoes at once. Take your time, be careful, and watch your fingers.
