Visitor Comments

  • it is very easy and fast to make.

  • Just wanted to let you know that this dish is out of this WORLD!! It WAS as easy as you say, and the "Ta-Da!" factor is great-- I made it for my mother, who isn't impressed with anyone's cooking but her own, and she actually said it was DELICIOUS! Thanks for helping me impress Mom!!

  • As my fiance did the dishes he exclaimed, 'Baby, that was AWESOME, that recipe is a keeper!'

  • This makes a lot. I recommend scaling to 4 Serves and then decreasing the pasta even more to 6 oz. The chopped fresh parsley was not just for color, it adds an important touch to the flavor, so don't leave it out. I will make it again.

  • Wonderful! I'll try to add a little white wine next time.

  • l used this sauce to make an unbelievable seafood pasta! lt totally rocked! Add some crabmeat, some scallops and some shrimp, layer with mozza and noodles..mmm mmm ...DELISH!!!

  • I added crabmeat to the sauce and served it with garlic bread. I definitely recommend this dish!

  • It was MAJOR yum. The kind of yum where you eat to the 'I am so stuffed stage'! Thanks !

  • excellent. everyone wanted recipe. delicious, had empty platter.

  • Your right! Great sauce! I'll try and mix it with some other dishes too!

  • I doubled the recipe, used all skim milk, even in place of the cream, and only had dried parsley. It was still absolutely fabulous! Thanks for a great recipe.

  • I used what was on hand: super skim milk, fat-free creamer and dried parsley. Even with those substitutions, it was delicious (and the shrimp had been in the freezer for a couple of months!)

  • My husband and I are both picky eaters when it comes to seafood, we both really enjoyed this recipe. It has a wonderful taste to it. I even used dried parsely, and it was great. I will be making this recipe a lot in the future.

  • Wow!! This was unbelievable!! I normally don't cook because of my work schedule. But I decided to try this and I am really glad that I did!! It was so easy to make and tasted so good.

  • I've never cooked before, and I wanted to make something special for my girlfriend so I chose this dish. I must admit it turned out EXCELLENT and it has inspired me to want to cook more often!

  • This dish is absolutely awesome! I made it a second time using scallops & peas, instead of shrimp & brocolli. WOW!

  • Thanks so much for the recipe, my boyfriend and I have dated for six months and I hardly cooked for him. He loved this and it was soooooooooooo easy, Thanks again so much.


  • My wife and I are trying to stay on our diet so for Valentines I wanted to make her something good and low fat. After finding this recipe and reading the comments this looked like a safe bet. In order to make this even more low fat I changed the following; butter = fat free squeeze butter, Cream = Fat free half & half, and milk = fat free milk. Well when all was said and done, it was extremely good. My wife said its one of the best tasting dishes I have ever cocked, and she was even more amazed that it was low fat. I would have to agree with her, it was surprisingly good. Thanks Robbie!!

  • This was very good although my husband said it had too much pepper. Might cut down on the white pepper next time.

  • This dish is definitly worth trying! Very good! This reminds me of a Red Lobster dish that they took off the menu. It was called Shrimp Malano. It was one of my favorit dishes.I give this dish a 10!

  • I added mushrooms when I cooked the shrimp. De-lish!

  • Fantastic dish and so EASY. Great way to great something green into the kids also. Thanks for another keeper!
