When I was in college, I worked at Pappasito's as a waitress. I LOVED their brochette shrimp and I asked the cook for the recipe. He didn't give me the exact measurements, but he did give me the list of ingredients. I went home and played around with the quantities of the ingredeints and came up with what I think is very close to the real thing!
This sauce is a modification of a pink vodka sauce that I made to go with the lobster ravioli for my family's Christmas Eve Dinner. I find that in alot of restaurants, the vodka sauce is quite a heavy and creamy. This is my creation to try and keep the sauce a little lighter, as well as compliment the lobster ravioli. I realize that lobster ravioli, at least for me, is quite a decadent treat. Please feel free to use this sauce for any pasta, as it goes quite well with them all.
Thick and Creamy! The sauce is just like the tasty alfredo sauces in italian restaurants. Easy and very well flavored. We enjoy this quite often either with shrimp or chicken. The bits of a plum tomato on top blends well with the creamy sauce and adds flavor. A pretty and wonderful dish!!!
In this flavorful dish, you can adjust the amounts to suit your personal tastes...I happen to like garlic and Parmesan cheese. If you have any leftovers, you can add a little more milk and heat briefly in the microwave oven.
You would never know that this recipe is from Cooking Light.
It is so full of flavour. Serve as an appetizer with cocktail forks.
For a main course add 1/2 cup Fat free Carnation milk when reducning the sherry and cook another 2 minutes; add remaining ingredients and serve on angel hair pasta.
Most Icelandic asparagus recipes use canned asparagus as fresh asparagus is usually only available in very up-scale grocery stores at a price most would refuse to pay. However, this recipe from *French Bistro and Cafe Cooking* by Pierre-Yves Chupin would make such a purchase worthwhile, for me at least. *Enjoy* !
