Pasta Habanero with Prawns and Wine

I could not resist this recipe from Giangi’s Kitchen ” Pasta Habanero with Prawns and Wine”. We both go to the same farmers market and we both stumble upon a local homemade pasta company. Giangis kitchen recipe caught my eye and I wanted to share it with you all.

If you live in Arizona or any place in the South West, you know that habanero is hot, and I mean hot. Preparing a sauce to go along side was her challenge.

1 cup white wine
1/3 cup whipping cream
1 small sliced and seeds removed tomatoes

In a large pot of salted water cook the spaghetti according to packaging directions.
