Filet MonicaPosted: September 28, 2013
last weeks food porn featured filet mignon po-boys. well, i had a decent amount of filet left over.
what to do, what to do.
earlier this week i told you about the time i cooked fettucini alfredo.
i was in the mood for pasta with monica sauce. it’s usually served with shrimp. monica sauce is simply alfredo sauce with a little thyme and cayenne pepper. but it’s a simple dish. so i decided to make monica sauce over angel hair pasta topped with the left over bite sized chunks of filet.
let’s do ‘dis lucas. you will need:
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup heavy cream (i went 1:1 butter cream and it was a bit too oily)
1 TBS thyme
1 TBS cayenne
2 TBS seasoning salt (i use tony’s), but season to taste.
1 cup chopped onion, celery, bell pepper (mixed)
1 cup parmesan cheese
2-3 cloves chopped garlic
1 lb shrimp (peeled)
1 lb cooked pasta of your choice
heat butter until melted and add the veggies and cook unitl translucent. add the cream and remaining ingredients. bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes until reduced. if using shrimp (or scallops/crawfish) add it during the last 10 minutes of cooking. pour sauce over the cooked pasta. enjoy. it came out on really well actually considering i was using steak.
c’ese si bon.
