Champagne Shrimp and Pasta for #SundaySupper

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta. A fitting way to toast the new year. A little bubbly for the shrimp, a little bubbly for me, a little more for the shrimp…where was I?
Oh yes, another year is coming to a close and a new one is just around the corner.

This week the Sunday Supper Group is taking time to reflect on the past year, make resolutions for the coming year and share traditions to ring in the New Year. Conni from the ‎Foodie Army Wife is our gracious host for this event. Thank you Conni for helping Sunday Supper usher in the New Year!
The new year is a scary time for me. I often get the feeling that time is getting away from me. They say as you get older, time speeds up. It must be true because I swear I just took the plastic off my windows and yesterday I put it up again. That’s another reason I buy all season radials. Who can remember to put on the snow tires before there is a foot of snow on the ground?
As far as food goes, I take the new year in stride.
I often make shrimp sauces with white wine but this is for New Year’s Eve. I felt champagne was in order! I also have some champagne vinegar on hand. It worked perfectly. No lemon juice needed.
This dish can be served as a small plates offering or main course.
As for the rest of the champagne, pour yourself a glass. Here’s a toast wishing you a bright new year that’s full of hope, opportunities, good health and good fortune! “clink”

    All I need is some shrimp and I’m ready to make this dish. Love the use of champagne instead of white wine. It makes it more festive. Happy New Year to you and I hope 2014 brings you much happiness and success.

  17. Shrimp, wine, and pasta is one of my very favorite combinations. It’s comfort food and festive all at the same time. Time absolutely speeds up every year, or so it feels to me too. Except of course, when life isn’t going my way. Then it seems to drag forever LOL.

  22. I’m 23 and I feel like life is slipping away, so it’s not just something you experience as you get older. The New Year is also a tough time for me. This pasta looks great. Pasta and shrimp go together so well!
