Habanero Pasta with Prawns and Wine Sauce

Habanero pasta with prawns and wine sauce.

A quick trip to our local farmers market is always fun. On my stroll between cheese sellers, fresh vegetables and freshly baked bread, I stumble upon a local homemade pasta company. I am not one to go outside of my box when it comes to pasta. I have my brands that I use and that is pretty much it. But  ” DeCio Pasta” caught my attention. Habanero, artichoke hearts, spinach basil with garlic pasta flavors and more were displayed. Of course, my mind raced on what can I make with them.

The Habanero linguine intrigued me. If you live in Arizona or any place in the South West, you know that habanero is hot, and I mean hot. Preparing a sauce to go along side was my challenge.

Grocery on hand, I left the market with inspiration and excitement on preparing a new dish. During  our travels this summer, I had this delightful pasta dish with wine, cream and garlic sauce. My challenge, therefore, was to replicate it while adding  prawns that I just purchased from Personal Gourmet Foods,. The result was delightful. The heat from the habanero pasta blended well with the cream and wine while lowering the heat effect. The prawns, which almost require a wine sauce in my book, were infused perfectly with the sauce as well. Each bite had a great flavor between heat and light sauce. A definite re-make in our family as everyone enjoyed it very much.

I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as we did. Stay tuned for Friday picks of the weeks. Five great recipes from the web.

Bon Appetit!!
