Shrimp and Pasta with Shallots and Lemon Pepper Olive Oil

This recipe for Pasta and Shrimp with Shallots and Lemon Pepper Olive Oil is the left-over result from a small dinner party. We bought a pound of Costco’s cooked shrimp seasoned with fresh cilantro and limes as an appetizer, they were well received and enjoyed by our guests. Couple of days later we were fridge […]

Pasta Ortolano

The other day my wife was longing for her favorite Mandola’s dish “Spaghettini Ortolano” so she decided to make her own version. And it […]
