Our James Beard dish for tonight should more properly be called “Spaghetti with Tomato-Shrimp Sauce,” because that’s really what it is. We’re using spaghetti instead of linguine for our pasta. It begins with a light sauce of tomatoes in puree, onions, salt, pepper, basil and butter. Shrimp, sautéed in garlic, parsley, olive oil, and Tabasco or red-pepper flakes are added to that. The whole thing is served atop the pasta, which in our case will be spaghetti. A spicy seafood excitement for the senses!
Tonight is also a great chance to catch up on some James Beard dishes you may have wanted to try earlier but missed out on: the Veal Chops Niçoise and Salmon Provençal are both back on the specials menu. And we’ve still got some of those Cream Puffs with Chocolate Sauce, filled with our vanilla-bean ice cream!
