A Valentine’s Day Recipe from Chef Julius

Whether you’re single or romantically involved, today should be about love and happiness and things that make for a fuller and more delicious life. I wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m back home from New York Fashion Week madness, and looking forward to continuing the Valentine’s Day celebration with my husband.

In the nine years we’ve been married, we’ve celebrated just about every kind of Valentine’s Day. We’ve gone on vacations and paid for expensive dinners, and we’ve had intimate celebrations at home. And our intimate celebrations at home somehow always manage to be the most special and memorable. I was looking for an amazingly delicious and fool proof recipe to cook together tonight, and my friends Chef Julius and his wife Jada Russell had THE perfect suggestion.

It’s called High Style Shrimp Pasta. And it’s sure to be a winner!

“It’s one of my favorites. We sort of developed it together and we have it almost every Valentines Day,” says Jada.

Here’s a clip of the lovely couple making the recipe on WGN.
