Spaghetti aglio olio con i gamberi

We will be learning Spaghetti aglio e olio con i gamberi a gourmet variation to one of the most popular ways of making spaghetti in Italy.  This Gourmet dish only takes 30 minutes from start to finish.  Don’t like shrimp?  I will demonstrate two other variations of the same dish.  You will learn three spaghetti dishes with three distinct flavors and appearances that can all be prepared in under 30 min. We make the shrimp pasta dish when we want to impress company or just eat something delicious and completely comforting.  This was my first taste of true Italian cuisine and I never wanted Gloria’s Little Italy again!  Get ready to come and share, laugh and eat!  We will be eating our spaghetti dish, and then salad and lemon ricotta ciambellone with a fresh lemon glaze (bundt cake). You will be surprised how refreshing and light Real Italian food can be!
