Creamy Langoustine Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Enjoy a fabulous evening with a seafood pasta that will make you feel like you and your date in the Caribbean. Langoustines, known to be sweeter than shrimp or prawns, delight as a tasty shellfish to sweeten up your pasta. Shrimp or prawns, however, can be a delicious substitute if langoustines are not readily available. The delicious tomato sauce adds to the seafood flavors. The secret to getting the sauce just right is to use a skillet to warm it up, causing it to reduce quicker, giving it a long-simmering taste in very little time. A special night is in store with this quick and easy gift to the senses.
