  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese , plus additional for garnish
  • 1 tablespoons grated Romano cheese

Rest of the Dish

  • 1 pound fresh linguine or angel hair pasta
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled


  • Remove any large stems from basil and wash leaves. Shake off excess water and dry leaves with a paper towel. Place in a food processor, using the blade attachment process until finely chopped. Process in two batches if necessary to get uniformly chopped basil. Remove from processor and reserve.
