The rainforest’s secret is known to a very few. But each is perfectly placed to profit from it. The secret is lithium— sometimes described as the oil of the 21st century—and the knowledge of it has spawned a crime cabal led by Vietnamese gangster-turned-investor Johnny Ho and including a diverse cast of fellow crooks. Their plan is to own the priceless resource in the middle of the island of New Guinea, cut down the rainforest, and leverage themselves into financial control of most of Southeast Asia. To protect them they have a weapon only a nuclear strike can combat. Or so they think.

Rainforest Shrimp


8 ounces penne pasta 
2 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup sun-dried tomato packed in oil (drained)
3 cups mushrooms, sliced
16 Jumbo shrimp, tails off (peeled and deveined) 
2 garlic clove
2 cups prepared alfredo sauce (Canned is okay)
2 tablespoon shredded parmesan cheese
1/2 cup peas (fresh or frozen-thawed) 
4 pieces garlic bread (or focaccia triangles)


1 Prepare penne as directed.

2 While penne is cooking, heat olive oil in heavy sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add sun dried tomatoes, mushroom and shrimp. Sauté for one minute. Add garlic sauté until garlic is golden-brown and shrimp are cooked through (pink, not gray).

3 Add Alfredo sauce and peas, stirring frequently until sauce is warm.

4 Remove from heat and add drained penne to pan, stirring until pastia is well-cooked.

5 Divide between 4 bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

6 Serve immediately with focaccia triangles or garlic bread.
