Garlic is a wonderful thing. Not only does it taste good, but it is also a natural antibiotic. Throughout my childhood whenever I would feel like I was getting sick my mom would always make me eat tons of garlic. Some people may be skeptical, but I have to admit, I spent very little time at the doctors office when I was a kid. Now as an adult, I cook with garlic on a regular basis and aside from a mild cold every once in awhile, Ryan and I don’t get sick that often. In light of recent headlines I figured it was time to give our immune systems a little boost so I decided to make this prawn pasta that is loaded with garlic. In addition to the garlic, there are flavors of shallots, basil, crushed red pepper, white wine, and tomatoes. What’s not to love?
Once again you may notice that there is quite a bit of spice in this recipe. With that said, if I was making this for my friend who doesn’t like spice at all, I wouldn’t have omitted the crushed red peppers completely because they do add a nice flavor. Instead, I would’ve used about 1/8 teaspoon.
While it may not be the best for first dates, it certainly does make a quick and easy weeknight meal and the immune boost is just a perk. Enjoy! :)
