Crab and shrimp are the stars of this seafood pasta chowder, along with mushrooms, green onions, spices, and red wine. Serve with crusty bread on the side, or better yet, in a bread bowl. This soup is rich and chunky, hearty enough to make a meal.
40 Clove Garlic Brisket is an adaptation of Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic, swapping beef brisket for the chicken. Personally speaking, I love it even more than the chicken.
