Prep Time: 10 min Cook Time: 10 min Servings: 2
4 ounces Black Squid Ink Pasta
2 teaspoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon shallots, minced
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
Nutmeg, freshly grated to taste
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
6 frozen cooked Shrimp thawed, tails intact (61 - 70 count)
2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, finely grated
4 chive stems for garnish
Prepare pasta according to package directions.
In a skillet over medium high heat melt butter, saute garlic and shallots for 2 minutes; add wine; boil until liquid is reduced by half. Add broth and cream, lower the temperature and simmer until the sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat; add nutmeg, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Spoon onto serving plates.
Twirl pasta around a long-tined fork, slide off onto the sauced plates. Add shrimp, cheese, chives and serve this beautiful delicious creation.
