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