I used about 2/3 C of cherry tomatoes cut in half reduced cayenne to a pinch and subbed whole milk for cream. I think I also reduced salt down to 1 tsp. but I don't remember for sure now... but with the salty olives and capers I doubt I'd put in 2 tsp. of salt. This was good and worth making again. Read More

I had leeks and shrimp and did an ingredient search and found this delicious recipe. I used frozen shrimp since that's what I had on hand. Just thawed it first under running water. Also didn't have heavy cream so I used some milk and a tablespoon or so of sour cream. Served it on rice fettuccine pasta. Hubby declared it "scrumptious." No photo because we ate it too quickly!

Very tasty and easy to prepare. The cayenne pepper adds a nice "zip" to the flavour. Read More
