Habanero pasta with prawns and wine sauce.

A quick trip to our local farmers’ market is always fun.

While strolling between cheese sellers, fresh vegetables, and freshly baked bread, I stumbled upon a local homemade pasta company.

I am not one to go outside of my box when it comes to pasta. I have the brands I use, which is pretty much it.

But  ” DeCio Pasta” caught my attention.

Habanero, artichoke hearts, spinach basil, and garlic pasta flavors 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 alongside was my challenge.

Grocery on hand, I left the market inspired and excited about preparing a new dish.

During our summer travels, I had this delightful pasta dish with wine, cream, and garlic sauce.

My challenge, therefore, was to replicate it while adding prawns that I 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.

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.
