This recipe was made using Anolon Gourmet Cookware, specifically Anolon’s Nouvelle Copper Cookware. My house is filled with Anolon products. I’m not even kidding. I use their cookware every day and I’m absolutely spoiled by it. The Nouvelle line is amazing. It has this copper insert in the bottom that provides even heating. It is incredibly durable, and guess what? You can use metal utensils on the nonstick surface. Spoiled much? It’s everything you want in pots and pans. I only want the best in my kitchen, and let me tell you, there’s a reason why they call it Anolon Gourmet Cookware. It’s pretty dreamy.

With Christmas coming up, this is the perfect quick dish to make for your Christmas Eve dinner. I even made it red and green so it’s totally on theme. And since seafood is a popular choice for a pre-Christmas dinner, this is the winner. And since it only takes 15 minutes to make you can spend more time with family and less time in the kitchen.

I forgot to mention I used veggie pasta. I saved 200 cal per serving! And less carbs and less wheat. I thought it was an excellent recipe. My husband loved it.

Used tomatoes with habanero (!), since I did not have fire-roasted, halved the recipe to try it out, very good! Next time might throw in some kale or zucchini to add a bit of color. Goes well with garlic bread!

Cooked this for lunch, its a good dish but has far to much pasta would definitely recommend halving the amount of pasta.

This is amazing. Our new favorite that we make for all our guests. I don’t use heavy cream. I use half and half. I also don’t use that much angel hair pasta. That’s a lot. I don’t decrease the seasoning. Makes it really flavorful. Love, love, love. Thank you!
