Pasta Garaud suggested by Michele Champlin Lepine
Updated: Mar 21
Pasta Garaud was the most popular pasta dish at Cannon’s. It had a great flavor that was different from Alfredo sauce, which you find at most restaurants. Over the years, it was enhanced with the addition of a spice mixture named appropriately Garaud Seasoning. It was definately not a sauce you would find anywhere else. The only problem I had with this dish was the size of the shrimp. Cannon’s used a 150-250 count cooked shrimp. Shrimp are sized by the number of shrimp in a pound. So the small the number, the larger the shrimp. Some people thought the shrimp included in the dish were a joke. I think that a 51-60 shrimp would work well. But you can use any size you want.

½ can Beef Broth
¼ cup Extra Dry Vermouth
