Baked Parmesan Shrimp & Pasta

I find myself drawn to pasta recipes lately. This was a really good recipe for making lots of leftovers! I guess I didn't look to closely at the recipe because we could have halved it. Oh well, we both had nice big helpings to take to work the next day! Anything that keeps me away from Chipotle...I would seriously eat there everyday and order the same thing. 

Here's what you do:

Preheat oven to 450*

In a medium sauce pan, melt 1/4 cup butter. Add 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1/2 lb peeled/deveined shrimp. Stir together, then place in a casserole dish. 
Bake uncovered for 10 minutes. 

Turn down temperature to 350*.

In a sauce pan (use the same one!) add 1 pint heavy cream. Heat for 5 minutes, and add 1 cup Parmesan cheese. Stir until melted. 

Meanwhile cook a box of Penne pasta according to package directions. Drain.

Add pasta to cream, and stir. Add in shrimp, and then transfer back into casserole dish. Top with 1 diced Roma tomato, torn basil leaves and 2 tablespoons bread crumbs. Bake for 10 minutes. 
Enjoy!
