Happy Monday friends! I was in my favorite cheese shop Over the Moon & we got to talking about food. Great food. This shop in Telluride is owned by a mother-daughter team & they stock some of the finest worldly cheeses, cured meats & provisions.

I was introduced to a bag of red chili linguini…a great recipe idea, Southwest Shrimp & Chorizo Pasta…and off I went to cook dinner.

Isn’t that pasta gorgeous? It has a slightly spicy/chili flavor.

If you cannot find it, no worries. Use what you have on hand.

The flavors in the sauce & chorizo will tantalize your taste buds no matter what! I used Kendra’s Kitchen Rub & Southwest Seasoning on the shrimp.

Use your favorite Southwest seasoning blend or make your own.

The fact that the pasta has a mild chili flavor makes me so intrigued! The hotter the better for me with most things :) Gorgeous dish, Marla! pinned
