Shrimp and Roasted Red Peppers

Well, you might be getting tired of hearing this but here is another recipe (though tweaked a bit) from the BH&G Ultimate Italian magazine.  I think I've made about 4 recipes in the last couple of weeks and this is probably one of my favorites.  There is sometime about roasted red peppers that just gives a dish a special 'umpf'. 

Simple ingredients

The onion and garlic are sauteed in butter and olive oil; then the shrimp is added with the crushed red pepper.  Next is the wine and roasted peppers and finally the heavy cream and basil...

The above is added to your favorite pasta (which tonight for us was penne) and dinner is done.  John gave this 4 stars!
