Sun Dried Tomato Bacon Wrapped Shrimp with a Brie Cream Sauce Pasta

Overview

So simple you really will be the chef when you cook this, it’s elegant and rich, and…festive! It’s a GREAT holiday dish and it’s good for all of the year’s holidays. I was just thinking how it’ll be great for Valentine’s Day. The brie, sun dried tomatoes, olives and pasta are true Mediterranean staples and this dish is overflowing with flavors and textures.

This creamy seafood dish takes me back to the late afternoons after fishing in Bel Paese – “Beautiful Country,” as the Italians have so humbly named their home. So rich and elegant this recipe is labor of love would impress any dinner date. The brie, sun dried tomatoes, olives, and pasta are true Mediterranean staples and this dish is overflowing with flavors and textures. Deliciously indulgent the creamy brie sauce mellows the rich bacon and bold sun dried tomatoes in the prawns making it a great dish to be served independently or alongside roasted asparagus with a glass of white wine.
