Cooking: Tequila Shrimp Pasta with Tomato-Cream Sauce

Best Recipes from the Award-Winning International Cookbooks (Savoring ...)

I found this recipe while leafing through the Williams-Sonoma Savoring Pasta & Rice cookbook. It sounded unique and I just had to try it. Who can resist boozy pasta?!?! *hic*

In total it took me about an hour and a half to make the pasta. A majority of that time was spent roasting the tomatoes for an hour. But, in the end all that time was worth it.  I loved the way the citrus juice flavor combined with the tomatoes and chipotle peppers.  My husband declared this pasta as “best and a half!”

I will definitely keep this recipe in my repertoire.

What’s Cooking: Pasta with Shrimp, Spinach & Tomatoes

Mr. Me requested shrimp pasta for dinner… so I went out to the garden to pick some tomatoes and basil. I had found a recipe for Penne with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Basil on epicurious.com that I modified a bit based on our tastes (read as: more garlic and red pepper).

The tomatoes and basil I picked from our garden and used in the pasta.
