Rosemary Prawns with Penne and Squash Sauce

This recipe features rosemary, whose heady, “piney” aroma makes it the perfect seasoning for grilled or broiled fish and meats as well as omelets and frittatas, chicken, and tomato sauces or soups. In the Middle Ages, rosemary's apparent ability to fortify the memory transformed it into a symbol of fidelity known as the “herb of remembrance.” In fact, rosemary's phenolic compounds increase circulation to the head and brain, thereby improving concentration and memory, and also reduce systemic inflammation. Rosemary is also shown to protect the liver, inhibit tumor activity, enhance digestion and reduce the severity of asthma attacks. But in this case, we're content with the deep flavor it adds to an easy dish!
