I’m sorry for the long silence on this blog and the long delay in replying to the friends that commented on my articles.
I’ve been quite busy in the last weeks and I spent a lot of time traveling around Italy (not for pleasure!).
In the meantime I’ve been renewed as an MVP on April the 1st (nice date to renew someone with such a bad sense of humor…).
I decided to celebrate my MVP award with a new recipe (to be honest, I celebrated by eating the results of this recipe!) and I decided to call it “penne alla MVP”… just because I’m not good in finding nice names for my recipes.
Ingredients (for 4 people):
- 360g pasta (penne or other short pasta)
- 300g small shrimps
- 1 cup of whipped cream
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 small leek
- 1 glass of beer (I used Hoegaarden dutch white beer… but just because I like it and I finished the rest of the bootle while cooking)
- Salt, pepper
Prepare the pasta by boiling it in salted water, as usual.
In the meantime chop the leek in very small bits, heat the oil inside a pan and when the oil is hot, drop the leek chops and let them cook for a few minutes. Add the shrimps and the glass of beer. Let them cook inside beer until they are cooked (if you used pre-cooked shrimps a couple of minutes would be enough to heat them and gave them the flavour of beer).
Add the whipped cream and mix it well with the shrimps and the sauce.
Dry the pasta and drop the sauce on top of it and then add the chives finely chopped.
