Totally fabulous and easy! I used Coconut Milk instead of heavy cream and dried mushrooms soaked in Vermouth along with a little cilantro and tarragon. Mixed shrimp and scallops for the seafood entry!
- 1 lb penne pasta
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 3⁄4 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 10 ounces mushrooms
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1⁄4 cup white wine
- 8 ounces lump crabmeat
- 3⁄4 cup heavy cream
- 2 teaspoons lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons rosemary
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese to taste
Directions See How It's Made
- Slice the mushrooms. Mince the garlic.
- Cook the pasta until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water. Set aside.
- Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until just pink, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.
- Add the mushrooms to the oil in the pan. Saute about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute longer. Add the wine and cook until about half is absorbed, stirring and scraping browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
- Return the shrimp to the skillet and add the crabmeat and cream. Simmer about 2 minutes until sauce thickens slightly. Add lemon zest and juice, rosemary, and salt and pepper. Stir in the butter until melted.
- Add the penne to the skillet and heat through, adding some of the reserved pasta water if needed to keep everything moist. Remove from heat.
- Serve immediately garnished with parmesan cheese.
