Gemelli Pasta with Shrimp

Posted Feb 10 2009 12:48pm
This is a light pasta dish...very simple to make.












                                                                       
Ingredients:
  • Gemelli Pasta
  • Shrimp
  • Asparagus
  • Brocolli
  • Spinach
  • Lemon Garlic-Asiago Bechamel Sauce 
  • Scallions
  • Asiago Cheese
Cook your shrimp and set aside. 

(You should cook the pasta, make the sauce, and steam the vegetables simultaneously...to ensure proper temperatures of all items in a timely fashion.)  
Make your Sauce:  
  • Sautee 2 cloves of fresh garlic in a little olive oil.
  • In the same pan start your sauce: White sauce (Bechamel)
  • Use about 2 tb. of butter and 2 tb. of flour (for your roux) on medium high heat...add milk a little at a time until the sauce is set to a nice consistency.  Turn heat down to med-low and add a touch of white pepper and a splach of lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)...then fold in a little freshly grated Asiago Cheese.   
Cook pasta until just al dente.  
Steam the asparagus and brocolli.
Combine pasta, vegetables (asparagus and broccoli), shrimp, and sauce to mix.
Add a handful of fresh chopped spinach (it will wilt with the heat of the pasta), some fresh chopped scallions, and top with a little fresh Asiago Cheese...serve and enjoy.
