Filotea Pennette Della Domenica Pasta with Shrimp in Cream and Truffles Sauce

P1160473

Pennette Della Domenica pasta and Cream and Truffle sauce are two new delicious discoveries we have recently made at Fairway Market in Red Hook area of Brooklyn.  The combination of these two products provide truly exquisite taste, paired together with pecorino romano cheese and topped with fresh shrimp and chives just make this dish simply irresistible.

Here is the statement about this pasta from their website: “Noted for its freshness, Filotea pasta is made according to an ancient recipe from le Marche using only the best flour and durum wheat semolina. Handmade and dried slowly at low temperatures, this pasta exhibits an authentic flavor of homemade pasta.”  Here is the company’s website for more info www.filoteasrl.com.

This pasta does have a unique taste with very homemade texture to it.   Very easy to make, and cooks just under 6 minutes.  We have a link for you to order it on Amazon, in our shop.  I have to say that this pasta did quickly become one of our favorites, and while most sites recommend serving with meat sauce…it tasted amazing with seafood and cream and truffles sauce.  This sauce is also sold at Fairway, and while it’s on the expensive side $9.99 for a little can, it’s worth every penny:)

Ingredients:

1 pack of Pennette Della Domenica pasta
1 can of Cream and Truffle Sauce
12 Jumbo Shrimps
1/2 Cup of Pecorino Romano Cheese
1 Teaspoon of butter, mixed with herbs
Fresh Chives and Dried Parsley for Garnish

How to make Pennette Della Domenica pasta with shrimp:

1.  Boil Pennette Della Domenica pasta according to packaging instructions.  It does come out a little aldente if cooked for 6 minutes, so feel free to boil it a little longer if you prefer it on the softer side.

2.  While pasta is cooking prepare your shrimp.  Boil about 3 cups of water, and add your trimmed shrimp.  Boil it until the outside of the shrimp turns pink and the center is milky white in color. This should take between three and five minutes.

3.  Once your pasta is ready, drain the water and add a little bit of butter mixed with herbs.  I usually freeze butter and herbs in ice cubes so I always have it available.  Mix well.

4.  Once pasta is ready mix it with your Cream and Truffle sauce.  Add it to the pasta, cover the pot with lid and let it stand for few minutes…so pasta absorbs the flavors.

5.  Now you are ready to plate your dish.  Add your mixed pasta to the plate, sprinkle it well with pecorino romano cheese (you also can use any other grated cheese as well, whatever you have available) and some dried parsley.

5.  Finally, top your pasta with your cooked shrimp and garnish with fresh chives.  Enjoy!
