For many people, no brunch isn’t complete without a Bloody Mary.  But not everyone likes a Bloody Mary, but everyone will love this Bloody Mary Shrimp Pasta recipe.  A good Bloody Mary has the perfect blend of spice, tomato, and vodka. This Bloody Mary Shrimp Pasta Recipe is a Bloody Mary you can eat, complete with vodka in the sauce.

Confession:  I serve this because I hate Bloody Mary’s, I hate tomato juice, I hate everything about it especially the smell.  Guaranteed – if I’m on an airplane and held captive in a middle seat someone on either side of me will order a Bloody Mary or tomato juice.  It’s true.  My husband didn’t believe me until he saw it happen repeatedly.

Anyway, this Bloody Mary Shrimp Pasta recipe is my Bloody Mary compromise – all the flavors of a Bloody Mary none of the yucky tomato juice.

I first had this dish at a little BBQ shack on the Homer, Alaska Spit when I split my time between Alaska and Florida, a cute little place with amazing BBQ, they are out of business now.  It’s hard to survive on the Spit with a tourist season that only lasts 3 months and most of the businesses close Labor Day weekend.

They shared the recipe with me, so I could share it with you.

Hope you like it!  Enjoy.

This is a great twist on the perennial brunch drink favorite.
Yes, this recipe calls for ketchup and ketchup on pasta sounds disgusting.  I know, I thought the same thing but somehow it works.
