If you are a pasta lover, this meal is for you. Shrimp Bucatini is a great option when serving a hungry crowd. The white wine and oil makes this dish a light one, but by adding shrimp and cheese this dish can feed anyone.
The hollow pasta allows all the flavors to absorb to create a flavorful dish. This pasta allows for a healthier alternative to the average pasta with marinara sauce. Don’t get me wrong, everyone loves a good sauce, but this meal takes a step on the lighter side.
If you choose, you can substitute the shrimp for another meat or, if you’re a vegetarian, you can make this pasta with no meat. All the flavors will still accentuate the pasta.
