Pasta with maine shrimp

Luckily my friend, Wendy Williams was willing to share with us her recipe for Whole Wheat Linguine with Maine Shrimp. Ah yes! Beautiful, sweet, baby, Maine Shrimp! And talk about seasonal. This delicacy is available for just a couple of weeks, so I pretty much try to eat them every day. They're gone before you can get tired of them.


fruti di mare al dente

I’ve been on a fruti di mare kick for more than a month now. Just thinking about it makes me want black mussels, tiny sweet clams and big, barely cooked shrimp and a spicy red sauce, over pasta of course. Here’s the thing. I’m very impatient. Not a self-deprecation, it’s just the way it is. That means I don’t want to wait. So, while I cook faster than the average bear, I still want it nearly now. Okay, now. Lucky for me, shellfish loves hasty schedule, cooking to perfection within minutes. A good sauce takes a bit longer and pasta a whole 15 minutes, including bringing water to a boil. I came up with this expeditious recipe that uses some of my favorite prepared ingredients. I stop on my way home and buy fresh shellfish. I fill up a pot with cold water and start boiling. By the time my pasta is aldente, my fruit di mare is perfection and I’m whirling like a Dervish. Here’s my speedy recipe. by Annabel Cohen


pasta with salmon, boursin and mushrooms

Even when Dennis and I have spent the day working at Al Dente, the fact that we can head to the Lake House, which is only 5 minutes from our pasta factory, is an unbelievable luxury. To top it off, as long as we remembered to grab a bag of pasta, we can have dinner ready in about 10 minutes.

Spring also means asparagus, so I decided to make a pasta dish using Al Dente Fettuccine with Shrimp and Asparagus.

pasta salad nicoise

Here's a great dish that does double duty: it can be dinner tonight and lunch tomorrow. It's delicious served slightly warm or chilled. For the best taste and texture use white albacore tuna packed in oil. It's much better than the chunk light in water.
