Let’s talk New Year’s Eve. What do you typically do for the occasion? While I love going out to eat, my husband and I started the tradition of keeping New Year’s Eve low-key after we had our daughter. That doesn’t mean we don’t add a few fancy touches to our night at home, however, and this year we will be sipping bubbly and enjoying this Champagne Shrimp Scampi. 

It’s a delicious and easy shrimp pasta dish that’s perfect for a dinner for two or for serving dinner to party guests. I love that the ingredient list is short for this dish so I headed to ALDI and grabbed everything I needed in one quick trip! Have you been to ALDI? I always find the best items. I recently grabbed some cute snowman pops for my daughter and all the ingredients for this Champagne Shrimp Scampi.

However you plan to count down to the New Year, you can find all the high quality items you need from the bubbly to pop at midnight to decadent treats for dessert too! 

While traditional Shrimp Scampi often calls for white wine, we’re kicking it up a notch for New Year’s and pouring our bubbly in instead. Trust me, it tastes absolutely amazing when sautéed with garlic, butter and lemon! 

Whether you’re making a spread for a crowd or creating a cozy night in like me, I hope you’ll give this Champagne Shrimp Scampi a try! And don’t forget, you can grab everything I used to make this dish right at ALDI! 

How to make Champagne Shrimp Scampi

  • Cook linguine according to package directions and set aside. 
  • In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add in garlic, red pepper flakes and raw shrimp. The key to cooking shrimp is not to overcook them. Shrimp are completely cooked when they turn light pink in color (only about 2-3 minutes). 

Champagne Shrimp Pasta

  • Pour in champagne and lemon juice. Season shrimp with salt and pepper.
