The memories of this shrimp salad stayed with me long after I first tasted it. I think that part of the reason is that it was the first time I was introduced to Papa Vince Busiate Pasta. I am not a pasta lover but I love to eat this artisan crafted pasta made with stone ground grain and imported from Sicily. It's not your average box from the grocery store and it makes the perfect dinner whether it's served hot or cold.
Italians don't eat so much pasta salad but here in coastal Alabama this dish is perfect for a light lunch and is a definite crowd pleaser at a pot luck! And it's another excuse to eat some more shrimp! In this recipe it's perfectly paired with the delicate flavor of Papa Vince lemon olive oil. I enjoyed it so much, I just had to learn how to make it myself and you should do the same!
We love this recipe because it contains our favorite pasta with a healthy, seasonal vegetable that is perfect for Fall. We add in lots of raw garlic which certainly adds to the flavor of the dish but it also boosts your immune system which is so important during the change of seasons.
