Alexandra's Italian Shrimp Creation

Here's another one---- passed on from Italy to the Albrights.. It was very delicious!

(serves 6 people)... the amts. and directions are approximate. Lots of room to improvise and love the dish!

2 1/2 # of shrimp
3 large tomatoes
2 garlic cloves
2 small grocery store boxes of mushrooms
small pinch of salt
3 Tbsp. of parsley
1 1/2 c. of champagne
angel hair pasta
Light cream (1 c.)
Olive oil


Chop up veggies
Salt the shrimp and lightly cook in champagne, while stirring. Add tomatoes. When liquid boils- remove the shrimp. This takes between 8-13 minutes)

Add 3/4 c of the cream to tomatoes and rest of liquid (1-2 minutes, so it gets thick.. and add in everything else-- except the 1/4 cream + parsley.

Saute mushrooms and garlic w/ olive oil and add in.

Put everything together and add back the shrimp.

Separately prepare the pasta, and then add the remaining 1/4 c of cream and parsley and toss.

Put the mixture on top of the pasta and enjoy!


  1. Sounds wonderful! And this is a great way for Alix to share her recipes from Italy (she can email pix to you, Janis). More! More!
