Will they eat it: Rachael Ray’s Leeky Linguine with Shrimp

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Recipes and Food

I haven’t written up a “will they eat it” post for awhile now. I was poking around my recipe archive and remembered how fun it was so I thought I’d revisit when I could.

I found a new recipe to add to my repertoire. It’s fast and flavourful and made a pretty good lunch the next day too. (Basically, the perfect weeknight dinner.) Spoiler alert: everyone ate it and I declare it to be a winner despite the fact that ONE individual picked out the leeks. Another person may have even yelled when I attempted to garnish with parsley. Sigh.

February 26 #dailylunches - Leeky Linguine with Shrimp (via Rachael Ray)

This Leeky Linguine with Shrimp recipe is via Rachael Ray. It’s a welcome change from the usual pasta recipes we have on rotation. Sadly, I did not have nearly enough leek as this recipe called for (only one lonely specimen in the veggie drawer) but it was still very good. I will definitely use the full amount next time even though I’ll be forced to put up with a complaint about the “green things.” :)

Let me know if you try this recipe. I’d love to hear how it turned out of you!

I’ve been wondering about the ‘will they eat it’ posts. So glad you did this one!

You know I think leeks are underrated. I often choose them in conjunction with, or instead of, onions when making things like sauces or stews, or soups, too!

Leeks can be pretty pungent. What I do to cut that a bit is cameralize them in some olive oil, sea salt and a touch of maple syrup. The resulting flavour is good enough to eat by themselves. Or try mixing them with bitter greens like rapini. So good.
