Creamy Tuscan Shrimp Recipe

 Prep Time 5 minutes
 Cook Time 10 minutes
 Total Time 15 minutes
 Servings 4
 Author Mandy Marie 


  • 1 pound shrimp (I used 31-40 count size) thawed & peeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 4-5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 dashes Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped or julienned 
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh baby spinach
  • Handful fresh basil cut into thin strips
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Melt the butter on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the flour and cook for about a minute, stirring until smooth.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the cream, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer for 2 minutes. Reduce heat if it’s bubbling too much.
  4. Add the shrimp and cook for around 5 minutes or until they’re cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened, taking care not to overcook them.

  5. Add the spinach and basil and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with salt & pepper as needed. Serve immediately. I like to squeeze extra lemon juice over the top when serving (up to you). You could also grate some fresh parmesan over the top if you wish.

Recipe Notes

  • Serves 2-4 depending on what else is served with this dish.
  • I used sun-dried tomatoes that were packed in oil (I drained the oil). If you use the dried kind, you may want to add more than 1/4 cup.

This creamy garlic Tuscan shrimp recipe with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and basil is rich, decadent, and ready in about 15 minutes! Great served over pasta or mashed potatoes.

I’ve not done a shrimp recipe yet here on the blog.  I wanted something quick and easy but also fitting in with the Spring-weather (which means rain for us)  comfort foods I’ve been craving lately. Enter these creamy Tuscan shrimp!

I used 31-40 count size shrimp in this Tuscan garlic butter shrimp recipe. Technically these are considered large shrimp, but to me, they’re more of a medium-size really when compared to some of the REALLY large shrimp out there. Anyway, any medium-to-large shrimp would work.

This is one of those dinners that make it seem like you tried really hard, but the time involved makes it perfect for weeknights. 😉

What to serve with creamy Tuscan garlic butter shrimp

Pasta, mashed potatoes, or rice would be delicious. Or, keep this recipe low-carb and serve it over zoodles!

I am always looking for easy but DELICIOUS meals to make for my family, as I work and we are all busy we just don’t have that much time to make something amazing.  This recipe is not only really delicious, but it’s also super easy!  2 of my very favorite things.  Not only do we love it, but our kids also love it (and want more!) Which is not always easy if your little ones are picky like ours!


The thing I love most about lasagna roll-ups is that you can make a big batch of them ahead of time and then portion them out into individual servings, or keep them together for a family dinner, and put them in the freezer until you are ready to serve them.

I bake my Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll-Ups and serve them for dinner then put the leftovers in the freezer for another day.

You can also follow the recipe instructions up to the point where they go in the oven and instead put them in an airtight container and store them in the freezer. Then bake according to the instructions when you are ready to eat them (you may need to add a little extra time if you don’t let them thaw in the refrigerator first).

It saves so much time and I love being able to pull out a single serving to heat up for lunch.


If you want to save yourself even more time, and make these Chicken Alfredo Lasagna Roll-Ups even easier you can use a rotisserie chicken. Just remove the skin and pull the meat off of the bone. Then use two forks to shred the chicken. It eliminates the need to cook the chicken and it means one less pot to wash at the end of the night!

White Chicken Enchiladas are made with flour tortillas, shredded chicken, mozzarella, green chiles and a delicious white cream sauce!
Blue and Pink Chocolate Cake General Recipe Card
Servings: 6


  • 2 cups shredded, cooked chicken (can use a store-bought rotisserie chicken)
  • 10 flour tortillas (taco size)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or mozzarella)
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
  • salt & pepper & Adobo seasoning, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  • Spray 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix together cooked, shredded chicken with one cup of shredded cheese along with salt, pepper and Adobo seasoning.
  • Place chicken mixture into each of the flour tortillas.
  • Roll them all up and place them in the prepared baking dish.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter.
  • Whisk in flour and let cook and thicken for 1 minute (don’t let it burn).
  • Add chicken broth and whisk until smooth.
  • Stir in sour cream and green chiles. Be sure not to let the mixture boil.
  • Take the sauce off the heat and pour it over the enchiladas.
  • Top with remaining shredded cheese.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
  • If you’d like, you can turn the broiler on high and broil these for a minute or two until cheese is slightly browned and bubbly.



  • You can cook your chicken a couple of ways. You can roast a couple of chicken breasts in the oven. Just drizzle a bit of olive oil on them and season with salt and pepper and cook for about 35-45 minutes.
  • Or you can boil your chicken until cooked. Or you could use a store bought rotisserie chicken. It just depends on how much time you have to prepare this and what flavor you want from your chicken. The roasted and rotisserie chicken are going to give you the most flavor.
  • Once chicken is cooked, you’ll want to shred it using two forks. Or if you have a stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, put your chicken in the mixing bowl. Turn mixer on and within a minute your chicken will be perfectly shredded.

The Best-Most Tasty Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Ever

I found this recipe on Pinterest and fell in love! We have made these now, 3 different times! This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. No funny ingredients, no chilling time, etc. Just a simple, straightforward, amazingly delicious, doughy yet still fully cooked, chocolate chip cookie that turns out perfectly every single time!


                                      I’m telling you, amazing 🍪


 Prep Time 10 minutes 

Cook Time: 8 minutes 

Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings 36 cookies Calories: 183 kcal 


  • measuring spoons
  • measuring cups
  • KitchenAid Mixer
  • spatula
  • baking sheet


  • 1 cup salted butter* softened
  • 1 cup white (granulated) sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt***
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (or chunks, or chopped chocolate)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder. Set aside.
  • Cream together butter and sugars until combined.
  • Beat in eggs and vanilla until fluffy.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients until combined.
  • Add 12 oz package of chocolate chips and mix well.
  • Roll 2-3 TBS (depending on how large you like your cookies) of dough at a time into balls and place them evenly spaced on your prepared cookie sheets. (alternately, use a small cookie scoop to make your cookies)!
  • Bake in preheated oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. Take them out when they are just BARELY starting to turn brown.
  • Let them sit on the baking pan for 2 minutes before removing to cooling rack.


  • When you remove the cookies from the oven they will still look doughy. THIS is the secret that makes these cookies so absolutely amazing! Please, I beg you, do NOT overbake!
  • **Butter. I use Kirkland Brand Salted Butter from Costco to make these cookies. I have also used Tillamook salted butter with equally excellent results. Unsalted butter would also be great! I just recommend tasting the dough to ensure that it’s salted to your liking!
  • ***Some people have said they think the cookies are too salty. Please be sure to use natural Sea Salt (not iodized table salt). If you are concerned about saltiness start with 1/2 tsp salt and adjust to your tastes. I always make it with salted butter and 1 tsp sea salt.
