    1. That's what I would like to know as well. It states "1 serving of pasta" which sounds like it only makes enough for one. But two cloves of garlic sounds like a lot for one serving in my opinion. I don't know now, I'm just going to change it up a bit and give it a try :)

  4. What kind of white wine did you prepare this meal with

  8. Kajuns and Creoles are not only two regional, or rather ethnic, cuisines, they are two completely different cultures that have developed historically at a distance of only one hundred and forty kilometers from each other.

  9. Didn’t have any white wine, used a fig jam, about a tsp. and cooked it down with broth made from the shells, of the shrumps, I’m from LA and that is a word lol
