Sip something fun this summer and relax with Portugal’s Casal Garcia wines. Fun enough for a gathering and versatile enough to pair with easy patio meals.
With a bright and refreshing lemon sauce, this artichoke and shrimp pasta makes for a light summer meal that is perfect to enjoy with friends on the patio, complete with a glass of white wine.
Lemon Shrimp & Artichoke Angel Hair Pasta is a light and bright pasta dish that’s perfect for those summer nights out on the patio. Pair it with some refreshing Casal Garcia wines and your taste buds won’t know what hit ’em.
Finding a white or rose wine in the summer that isn’t sickeningly sweet is SO HARD. I can’t do sweet wines like I used to when I was younger and hadn’t developed my taste for dry wines. Discovering wines like Casal Garcia is something I seriously live for. These fresh, dynamic wines don’t overwhelm your taste buds with cloyingly sweet flavor. Instead they are sharp and spritzy, perfect for accompanying bright dishes like this shrimp pasta I’m serving up today.
The lemon sauce on this pasta is so light (there’s no butter! I can be healthy sometimes!), giving the pasta just the right touch of acid to balance out the rich artichokes and savory shrimp. Each bite is bursting with summer, and the kick of basil and freshly grated parmesan cheese is a killer bonus.
Patio dinners should be everyday day, all summer long. With extra wine please.
