Dill Pasta with Langostinos


Dill Pasta with Langostinos | Cooking on the Front Burner #pasta

It's no secret that I love pasta... I'm sure sauce runs through my Italian veins!  And I'm always on the lookout for new ways to enjoy it.  Recently while at the farmer's market, I came across a local gal selling her homemade pasta from Wink's Herb'n Garden.  She had about 5 different flavors and I decided to give the dill a try.  The pasta itself is simply made of organic durum semolina, eggs and fresh dill.

When I asked her how to to prepare, she suggested some seafood with olive oil and S&P.  Luckily, I just happened to have a bag of langostinos in the freezer from Trader Joe's.

Recipe:
  • 8 oz. dill pasta (or your favorite kind)
  • 10 oz. bag langostinos (defrosted)
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T white wine
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • Additional olive oil
  • S&P
Heat the 1 T olive oil and the butter in a medium skillet, add the garlic and saute about 1 minute then add the wine and simmer 3 minutes; add seafood and toss until heated through (my seafood was pre-cooked).  Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the directions, drain and place in a large bowl.  Add langostino mixture and gently toss.  Add additional olive oil as desired and season with S&P.

That's it!  Very simple and very good!
