Mr. B’s Bistro, New Orleans
Pasta Jambalaya is one of Mr.
dishes, one that has become
a beloved New Orleans classic.
The Mr. B's Bistro Cookbook:
Simply Legendary Recipes from New Orleans's
Favorite French Quarter Restaurant
"Years ago we decided that jambalaya didn't have to be rice. We recreated it
with pasta, and it has been a favorite ever since.
At the restaurant we prepare
this one serving at a time in one skillet at a time to ensure that the vegetables
and shrimp don't
overcook. To achieve the same results at home, it must be
made one portion at a time. So don't plan on having guests over to
dish or you will spend all your time in the kitchen."
