Shrimp'n Shrooms w/Creamy Cognac Sauce

Kim Biegacki


Well, tonight was a meal all for me since my husband is in Florida taking an exam. I rushed to the store and got the goodies. LOL
I was so excited to make this dish cause I love all these items and my new found love of cookin' with cognac and pancetta just put it over the top with flavor.
I didn't have anyone to share this with so I will rely on you all to share whether you like my one of a kind creation.
I really loved how the wavy kale held the sauce. I love taking a bite and getting a nice bite of the creamy cognac sauce with shrooms and shrimp too.

Stirring occasionally & then add your tomato paste & remaining cognac. (If you need to you add a little water if necessary).
