Thick ribbons of pappardelle pasta are an elegant vehicle upon which wild-caught Gulf shrimp, fresh garlic, sautéed sweet peppers and a splash of heavy cream come together to form a rich symphony of flavors. Fresh chopped tomatoes marinated in capers, lemon juice, green onion and parsley for extra zing are folded in at the last minute to balance the creamy, savory flavors in the dish.
