I thought I was starting to get sick of pasta . . . until I came across these pictures posted by WhiplashGirlchild.
The chewy comfort of the penne, the creamy sauce, and the Mediterranean-inspired flavors with the shrimp sound just perfect for a family-style meal. Her own recipe for cheesy bread looks entirely delicious, and I think I'll throw in a garden salad for good measure. I'm grateful to have another dinner menu worked out! For this tantalizing recipe,

- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2-4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup white wine
- 1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 2-3 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
- 2-3 tbsp fresh basil, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste
- For garlic bread:
- (Sorry, I don't have measurements for this one)
- Sliced Italian bread
- olive oil
- garlic powder
- mozzarella cheese, shredded
First of all, I'd use raw shrimp if I were you. That's what the Pioneer Woman did. But my local supermarket was out of fresh shrimp (WTF) so I used frozen. If you use fresh, check the PW's site for how she cooked it. Since mine was already cooked, I skipped that part.
Heat the butter and olive oil together in a large skillet over medium heat. While you're at it, put some more butter and olive oil in a bowl. We'll get to that later.
Let that cook for a while. While you're doing that, get the garlic bread ready (see below).
This was so yummy and easy! But next time I'll use raw instead of frozen shrimp.
