i follow quite a standard recipe perfected by wife. she still makes the best crayfish pasta! ^^

  1. i peeled & browned 1 whole bulb of garlic cloves in olive oil with wonderful aroma
  2. added 2 cut chilli padi & some fresh basil (optional)
  3. added 1/2 bottle papa alfredo traditional sauce (other brand pasta sauce will do also), & 1/2 can peeled tomatoes & fried a bit
  4. then added chicken stock, white wine, sugar & reduced.
  5. then added 6 tbsp thickened cream, and salt to taste.
  6. i added the 12 crayfish halves, covered till 1/2 cooked.

later i just needed to reheat the sauce over few minutes w/o overcooking the crayfish. 🙂

the sauce was excellent, tasty with the crayfish & combining well with the pasta.

Valentino’s crab squid-ink linguine in pink sauce 

my pink sauce is very less the very creamy pink sauce at Valentino’s!

i like Valentino’s pink sauce, but i also like my very less creamy concoction with very nice tomato flavours. maybe i will try a heavy cream pink sauce the next time to see if i can approximate valentino’s preparation. 🙂
