Shrimp and Shells
I wish I'd taken a photo. It looked so nice! We had shrimp and pasta shells for dinner last night.
I sautéed about 18 medium shrimp in some oil in my cast iron frypan, then I removed them to a plate. I then sautéed a medium chopped onion and a chopped green pepper, until they were soft. I added a couple if minced garlic clices and sauteed them for a minute. Then, I added a chopped, peeled, and seeded tomato; plus salt, pepper, dried basil, and dried oregano; plus a cup of frozen corn.
In a pot, I'd been boiling a few handfuls of medium pasta shells. I tossed a ladle or two of the starchy pasta water into the frypan. When the pasta was done, the corn was heated through, and the tomato was broken up, I put the cooked shells into the pan ad mixed it thoroughly.
I served it bowls with sourdough toast on the side. Iced tea to drink. If I'd had white wine, I might have cooked it into the sauce. Delicious!

Savory Coeur à la Crème
Garten tops hers with Major Grey's chutney, but I went for a sweeter topping of fig preserves. The mold is surrounded by cut fresh figs. We'll serve it as a spread in water crackers.
