Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes, Arugula Recipe

Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula

Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula

Earlier this week during an online wine tasting with Ferrari-Carano wines, we mentioned the recipe from the winery’s website for Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula. Before the wine tasting, we discovered that the Ferrari-Carano website has a section called Rhonda’s Kitchen which offers many recipes some of which use wine as an ingredient. Terry prepared the recipe that included a 1/4 cup of the Fumé Blanc. (Rather than use capellini, Terry used whole grain spaghetti as a substitute.)

In addition to enjoying the  Fumé Blanc, the Capellini with Shrimp, Tomatoes and Arugula added a delightful note to the day. This is definitely a recipe we will use again.
