Pink Tagliatelle with Cream and Prawns

When we decided to make a pink tagliatelle, the question arose in us what kind of sauce would be suitable for it. To keep this so delicate color, visible when serving, we had to choose a fine and creamy sauce. It will be complemented by the aroma and character of garlic. Italian cuisine loves garlic, so don’t forget it.

We mainly count on fresh products and always rely on quality ones. In this line of thinking, no compromises can be made when choosing shrimp. Of course, they must be fresh. Shrimp are a great delicacy, and in combination with pink pasta (the recipe can be found HERE) we can talk about a perfect taste.

In addition, we add some walnuts, as we love crispy textures. A great addition to our creamy – walnut sauce are the royal mushrooms. Fresh or dried porcini are also a great alternative. The choice is yours. For the recipe we use a few fillets of anchovies, which make the taste of tagliatelle even richer. Sprinkle the finished dish with Parmesan cheese and a few drops of olive oil. The taste and aroma are complex to describe, so try our original dish and you will not regret it.
