  • 2 ounces fresh basil leaves (about 2 bunches)
  • 10 ounces butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 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. 
  • Place butter in small mixer bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip butter until pliable. Add garlic, salt, pepper, Parmesan and Romano cheeses, and basil; mix until well incorporated. Basil butter can be used immediately or stored covered in refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. Cook pasta according to directions; drain well and keep warm. Melt basil butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp and saute just until done, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve over hot, cooked pasta. Pass the freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
