PW Penne Alla Betsy


I really need to make this one again...and again and again and again! I went a little wild with the half and half. The recipe calls for heavy cream but I was trying to go a bit lighter. I was talking (shock, huh?) and dumped more in than I meant too.

It surely didn't make this creamy, tomato based, shrimp, pasta dish any less delectable. But next time I want it to be thicker...like the recipe in the book. It's not supposed to be soup for goodness sake.

Madley and Little Indy really loved it. Madley almost always orders a dish like this when we go out to an Italian restaurant. It tasted as good if not better than any restaurant I've been to. Even though I thinned it out too much.

The girls ate homemade pizza bagels because shrimp isn't on their list of favorites...yet.

We even have leftovers for tonight so I won't have to cook today. Madley has been under the weather and was going to make me his famous Meatless Spaghetti today, but he can do that next week.

A big thumbs up to Betsy and her scrumptious recipe...thanks for letting Ree put it in her book!

So until we meet again...and I have so much more to cook and say...

Bon App├ętit!

  2. This is one I'll be trying. And I love any recipe that produces enough for two meals :)
