Pasta Garaud suggested by Michele Champlin Lepine

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

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.

Pasta Garaud

Warm heavy cream. When warm, add beef broth and vermouth. Reduce for five minutes. Add salt, white pepper, granulated garlic, Garaud seasoning, and Nutmeg. Cook over low fire until mixture thickens to a medium white sauce consistency. Add shrimp and fettuccini and cook until desired consistency.
