We had this last night and it will become a regular quick weeknight dinner for us. After reading several reviews, I changed a few things to make it more suited to our tastes. First off, I sauteed some chopped onion and bell pepper, seasoned with a little Creole seasoning (Tony's). Once the veggies were nearly tender I added the shrimp and garlic, and seasoned with a little more Tony's and a couple pinches of Aleppo pepper (so good!). When the shrimp was done, I scooped out the veggies and shrimp, leaving as much liquid in the pan as I could. Whisked in the flour, added the milk and when it thickened, added some grated Parmesan and a good handful of thawed frozen peas. Then I put the shrimp and veggies back in the pan, then the cooked pasta. When everything was heated thru, added some fresh parsley, a diced tomato and a couple sliced green onions. Sounds like a lot of tweaks but it actually went together in under 30 minutes and I was in no mood to make a salad, so the extra veggies made it a one dish meal. The original recipe has great "bones" but I was after something with veggies. It was amazingly delicious, and reheated great for lunch today. Since my original review, I've made this with leftover chicken, ham and pork roast. All were very good!
