    Here's mine

    My favorite pasta and seafood - dip some fresh Roma tomatoes in boiling water, peel, chop into 1/4 or smaller. Saute a little onion and garlic in butter and olive oil, the tomatos and a leaf or two of fresh basil. Cook gently til tomatoes are cooked. ,add cooked angle hair pasta and cooked shrimp, marinated artichoke hearts and black olives, add a little more olive oil and a squeeze of fresh lemon for flavor. You can also add a couple handfuls of white beans (cannaloni) if you like for add'l texture. Throw a little parsley into the pot and serve with crusty bread and a side bowl of olive oil for dipping the bread. Voile! Instant Italian Mama

    I assess Italian restaurants by their shrimp scampi. Love the stuff. Cantonese is second best, still excellent chow.

    I probably got more shrimps recipes than Bubba Gump but this one has set a new hall-mark.
     
  8. If you melt a whole cup of butter and throw in some chopped green onions , mushrooms, and crushed garlic, and two pounds of peeled shrimps and pour over angel-hair pasta and some grated cheese and invite me to dinner, I'll bring a date!

    add artichoke hearts and black olives and you're on - plus, go for the olive oil instead of butter. Pasta is made with olive oil so adding it to the pasta enhances the flavor

    Wow, you guys have got my mouth a'watering!! I read both recipes to my bride and she said she'll eat them if'n I cook them.
    OK, sounds like a date! I'm glad I've lost a few pounds as the butter and cream recipe is going to fight that loss.
    Thanks!
