Shrimp and Chicken Pasta


Saturday afternoon soccer games = Friday night pasta night. 


I have so much respect for soccer players.  They are really in great shape.  I wouldn't even be able to guess at how far they run but I can tell you that for the 90 minutes that the clock is running - they are running. 


All of that running requires a lot of energy.  Courtney's favorite way to get the energy she needs for a game is pasta.  For her, its pregame fuel.


Shrimp and Chicken Pasta
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup cooked chicken
1/2 pound basil
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
14 ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup sherry

 Cook pasta according to package directions.



 Heat 1 Tablespoon oil and 1 Tablespoon butter in skillet and saute until pink and cooked through.



 Remove from skillet and add 1 more Tablespoon oil.  Add onion and garlic and cook 3 minutes.



Ad sherry and cook until evaporated.



 







Add tomato sauce and bring to a boil.







Reduce heat and add cream.



 Add shrimp, chicken, and basil.



Add pasta.



Serve.


The pasta was great and the soccer game ... well, it was pretty great too.


 Ciao!
