Pasta Escargot

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by A la Carte

I had a dish like this in Paris, and was craving it today. So I tried to replicate it and it was really tasty! If you like escargot, give it a try. I got snails in a can (no fresh here in the US generally) in the tuna section of the supermarket. I do low carb, so I used Dreamfields Pasta, which is very good and tastes exactly like the regular stuff.

I'm one of those people who actually do like escargot!!! So, I was looking forward to this. I just found it to be far too bland for my taste. It definitely needed salt and pepper and I just loaded on the hot sauce after it was on my plate. I used rotini pasta. This was ok but I will tweak it quite a bit next time.
