I love pasta. As I'm trying to lose weight, I've not been eating much of it lately. But it is my go-to dish when I want a quick flavorful meal. My favorite dish is to cook garlic in olive oil, add shrimp, red pepper flakes, and a splash of white wine. Simple and delicious.

Last night I couldn't calm my craving for pasta, so I decided to give in. I had a package of Squid Ink Pasta that I had purchased at a specialty Italian market here in Anchorage. I topped that with a quick dish of a variation of my favorite. I sauteed sliced garlic, leeks, and zucchini in olive oil. Added shrimp and red pepper flakes. Added a large splash of white wine. That was it. It would have been okay if I hadn't eaten a huge bowl. But I was satisfied.

Hi, I do a blog for Chez Alaska Cooking School in Juneau, and I've been enjoying your site. Your food compositions look great, and your photos are colorful and well-lit. Keep up the good work.

Derrick-I just saw this comment. My filter had sent it to junk comments. Thanks for the compliments. I'm not familiar with your cooking school, I'll check out your site.
