I don’t know about yall, but I love an evening at home filled with delectable food, good friends and of course the evening isn’t complete without wine. I am sharing one of my favorite go-to recipes while entertaining: Lobster & Shrimp Alfredo. What I like about this recipe is it looks really fancy, but it’s so easy to create. There isn’t a lot of prep time and did I mention it’s absolutely delicious. In my opinion, all good recipes are better with a superb wine pairing. I paired this pasta dish with the award-winning J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay from beautiful Monterey, CA. The pairing was ideal because J. Lohr Estates Riverstone Chardonnay is crisp & delicate.

My good friend Mark joined me for supper last week and he’s still raving about this recipe, which means a lot because he’s a chef. This recipe is good year round and I was really impressed with the quality, especially at this price.

Bon Appétit!
