Seafood and Basil Pappardelle



Seafood and Basil Pappardelle 
Serves 3-4 

  • 1 package pappardelle
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 tbsp cream  
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flake 
  • Salt, pepper 
  • 1 bag of mixed seafood (try Trader Joe's)
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • Fresh lemon juice



Prepare pappardelle by package directions, reserving 3 tbsp of the pasta water for later. In a large skillet, add a thin layer of olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and saute 2-3 minutes. Then add white wine and simmer on low for 1 minute, then add cream, milk, pepper flakes, salt and pepper, whisk until combined. Allow sauce to thicken, then add frozen seafood and cook until pink. Follow with reserved pasta water, basil, parmesan, lemon juice and noodles. Toss pasta together, and plate with another sprinkling of basil and parmesan.
