Campotti With Shrimp

Enjoy this recipe from Monastero Santa Rosa's restaurant chef Christopher Bob

The production line of “Campotti” at Dei Campi Pasta Factory started in 2012 with Monastero’s chef Christoph Bob becoming an exclusive ambassador of this particular pasta shape. Since its production started, he has created some new authentic recipes specific for Monastero Santa Rosa’s restaurant on the Amalfi Coast. Here is one of these recipes, which is easy to cook even at home.


Lemon-Flavored Olive Oil:

  • 1/2 Cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Zest of one unwaxed lemon

Main Dish:

  • 3 Cups campotti pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 3 Cups fresh shrimp
  • 1/4 Cup lemon juice (or juice of 2 lemons)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup chopped fresh spinach


Lemon-Flavored Olive Oil:

Scrub the lemon clean and dry thoroughly.

Use a very sharp paring knife or peeler to remove the zest — just the bright yellow part of the peel, avoiding the bitter white pith immediately below — from the lemon.

Put the lemon zest and the extra virgin olive oil in a small bowl in order to get all of the flavor.

Save this lemon infusion for the end of the preparation.

Main Dish:

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat.

Add the pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender but still firm to the bite (al dente), about 8 to 9 minutes. Drain the pasta and save 1 cup of the cooking broth.

Meanwhile, in a large, heavy skillet, warm the two tablespoons of olive oil over a medium heat.

Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp and cook until pink, about 2 minutes.

Add the cooked campotti, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper and toss.

Using a mesh sieve strain the lemon zest out of the oil and put the now lemon-infused oil in the pasta.

Add some of the cooking water to desired consistency.

Add the chopped spinach to the pasta and toss to combine well.

It is now ready to be served. Buon appetito!
