One of the flavor combinations I find most attractive is garlic with langostinos. I grew up eating langoustines on special occasions. Langostinos are sweet, plump, and delicious. They are caught in the southern part of Chile. Although I usually do not use garlic in the kitchen. This Langoustine Pasta satisfies the craving very well.
“Langostinos al pil-pil,” or garlic is a classic appetizer; there is nothing like soaking warm bread in the juices. Or combine it with noodles or other short pasta, and you have an elegant and straightforward dinner preparation in a few minutes.
If you are short of time, you can cook the pasta the day before and present it as a casserole, put cheese on top, bake, and serve.
Langostinos are sold at Costco and Trader’s Joe.

Fixed it, thank you.
At what point is the chicken broth or white wine used?
