Thank you Drick for following my blog!
Be prepared to swoon....if you are a fan of seafood. Honestly, a big shout out to Drick over at Drick's Rambling Cafe for his prize winning dish, Pasta with Seafood Sauce.
Now did he really win a prize? I'm not sure, but our household would give him a prize for this creamy delicious creation.
I modified his recipe just a tad.
Here is a list of ingredients I used:
about 2 cups heavy cream
6 to 8 green onions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
1/2 tablespoon pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 package fresh Buitoni linguine
1/3 cup freshly grated Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4 pound medium shrimp, shells removed
1/4 pound lump crabmeat
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the cream and cook stirring constantly until almost boiling. Reduce heat to low and add the next 6 ingredients. Stir and simmer for about 8 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat.
I was able to snag some fat juicy scallions at the market.......
Get your pot of boiling water ready for the pasta. Grate the cheese and add this to the cream sauce, stirring gently. Remove from heat.
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until lightly brown. Add the shrimp and crab meat and stir until the shrimp turns pink. Remove from heat.
See how fine the crab meat is? Wish I had gotten the lump variety and will do so next time.
A rich creamy sauce loaded with seafood........
Plate the seafood sauce over the cooked pasta. Sprinkle with the parsley or basil and serve immediately.
We served this with the tiny bit of leftover calamari and Chardonnay.
Thank you Drick for turning us on to a new favorite. Man....I am so going to gain weight!
