Just Another Pasta Dish…!

I’m going to tell you a secret…I love pasta…! OK so I guess it’s not much of a secret at this point 🙂

Recently I came across a recipe for Creamy Linguine with Shrimp. OK, another secret: I used to eat shrimp as a little tyke at Red Lobster. But now I really just hate the fish. But the recipe looked pretty good so I gave it a shot with modifications. Hope you enjoy.


8 ounces linguine noodles

2 tablespoons butter

1 pound asparagus, trimmed and sliced.

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 cup heavy cream

4 teaspoons of Italian seasoning

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon coarse salt

2 cooked fillets of dover sole

freshly grated romano cheese


Cook linguine as normal, drain and reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water. Melt butter in large, deep skillet on medium heat. Add asparagus and garlic, cook and stir 5 minutes or until asparagus is softened. Add cream, seasoning, lemon juice and salt. Bring to simmer, stirring occasionally.

Stir sole into skillet, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add pasta and reserved cooking water, toss to coat well.

Sprinkle with grated Romano cheese and a light chilled Riesling wine.
