Delicioso and Bella~
I found this beautiful pasta in Little Italy..
I first spotted it at Lori's delightful blog~
Jacques had bought some unfiltered EVOO,here ..that came from Spoleto!We went to Spello.. but both are in the gorgeous Umbrian region of beautiful Italy.
I thought..Hmm..what do I make on this sunny... beautiful... early evening?
I decided on Shrimp pasta..
We baked the shrimp in the oven while I was cooking the pasta..
In a saucepan..I warmed some EVOO and butter..added fresh garlic,red chili peppers from Italy....some lemon juice and white wine.. ..Reduced it all .. then quickly added the cooked shrimp..loads of chopped fresh parsley from my little herb pots..and lots of grated lemon zest..tossed w/ the pasta..
the skies became black and grey and our little outdoor set up for "al fresco" dining was rushed inside..to the sound of pelting rain and thunder!:(
My hope of getting a nice crisp summery photo was drowned:(
But it was DELICIOUS!
And the shrimp married beautifully with this gorgeous pasta.
I will definitely buy it again~
We eat with our eyes first I think... At least I do:)And this pasta..is just so wonderfully appetizing~
Just want to wave hello to Soleil..who is an artist at eye candy ~
And who's blog is also so beautiful..you cannot go stop in for a visit:)
