Hey guys, I am new to this forum, I have several questions about pasta. First of all, I love seafood. One of my favorite pasta dish is the seafood portifino from olive garden.
The seafood portifino is a pasta dish mainly composed of some sort of:
-garlic butter sauce mixed in some sort of rioux/reoux(sp?)
in fish/shrimp stalk
I know many people think that Olive Garden is a total insult to authentic Italian food (and i agree with them for the most part) but that is the only exposure to Italian food that I have in my area. Here is my first question:
1) Does anyone know the EXACT recipe for this Olive garden dish, or does anyone have a recipe similar/or better than that?
I am also confused on what seasonings/spices/herbs they use in that dish, so the second question is:
2) How much of each ingrediant do i need? (like how much of stalk/butter/mussells/shrimp/etc..) and what seasonings and spices do they use?
My last question pertains to pasta itself. I am trying to be more health concious. Pasta is mostly composed of simple starchy carbs. I am trying to incorporate more complex carbs in my diet, does anyone know pasta/spaghetti that is composed of whole wheat, or complex carbs in general?
Thanks a lot you guys! I appreciate all your help!
