Shrimp+ Asparagus+ Pasta+= A Party in Your Mouth
This shrimp pasta recipe is BANGIN’ with flavor—it’s a little spicy, a little creamy, and has a rich shrimp-y flavor. You don’t need to spend a ton of time in the kitchen but it looks like you did —great for company, date night, or just dinner with the family.
What Type of Wine Should I Use?
This recipe calls for “dry white wine” and although it may be tempting to grab a “cooking” wine, DON’T DO IT! “Cooking” wines contain salt and other additives so it’s better to get a good inexpensive “drinking” wine. A dry white wine is simply a wine that is not sweet. For cooking, you want a “crisp” wine which means that it has high acidity. Dry white wines that are crisp include Pinot Grigio, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, and dry sparkling wines. Chardonnay is good for drinking but a bit too oak-y for cooking and can get bitter when cooked. Be sure not to grab it. For this dish, I like using a Savignon Blanc but feel free to choose any of the crisp wines I mentioned above.
