Fettuccine with Shrimp and Pineapple in Tomato Sauce

I love to make my own tomato sauce for Italian pasta.Remember my previous Oregano linguine post? Check it out HERE ! Sometime,the farm market I shop will pack fresh tomato in individual bag for quick sale. I think it's weight approximately 5 pound each bag for $0.99. Good deal ,right? Of course, this perishable will go bad quickly,so they just sell it at bottom price rather than throw away. I want to try out some others exotic flavor for this fettuccine,so add in 1/2 cut fresh pineapple in cube and it's really out great!!

Ingredients For Sauce:

3 lb Fresh Tomato- (wash,cut and blend)

1 cup Parmesan cheese

2 tbsp sugar

1 tbsp salt

5 clove garlic (sliced)

3 tbsp olive oil

1/2 cut fresh pineapple(cut cube)


1/2 box/pack fettuccine

I lb clean shrimp (small size)

Parmesan cheese for sprinkle *optional*

1 stalk cilantro for garnishing *optional*


1:Fill a large stockpot with water at high heat. Let's the water rolling boil,add in salt and pasta ,cook until al dented,sieved set aside or cook accordingly to the box instruction .

2:Blend clean and cut tomato until fine or puree.Prepare stock pot at high heat with olive oil,add in garlic ,fry until lightly brown not burn.Add in blended tomato sauce,reduce heat to medium.Add in salt,sugar ,pineapple cube with juice and Parmesan cheese into the sauce.Let it simmer until boil,then add in shrimp .Cook for 5 minutes.

3:Add pasta into fresh tomato sauce ,mixed well.Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and cilantro on the top.Serve warm.


You can use pineapple in can if don't have fresh pineapple but omit the sugar.
I would love to submit this pasta dish to Presto Pasta Nights ,created by Ruth and this round up is host by Theresa of Food Hunters Guide .Hop over to join the event if you're interested:)

hi there, i stumbled upon yr blog a few days ago and have been having a fabulous time reading all your recipes. I'm a malaysian currently living in nyc and it's so good to see so many wonderful malaysian recipes in your site. It has inspired me to try out some of the dishes! Your cooking looks amazing!

May I know if there's a specific malaysian supermarket you go to to buy your ingredients? actually, is there even a malaysian supermarket here in ny? (like a true malaysian supermarket, not any asian supermarket)?

I guess you must not live long in NYC..Anyway,there is no such thing as Malaysia supermarket in NYC..There are plenty of Asian market that carry Malaysia products.If you live in Queens go to Elmhurst, Topline Supermarket,Pacific supermarket and Hong Kong supermaket do carry large selection of Malaysia product.And if you live in Manhattan,go to Asian mart on Mulberry and Canal St...Well,you can always email me if you have any more questions..

the cooking ninja:
