I too used half and half instead of cream. I sauteed onions and mushrooms in about 2 Tb butter, then added the half and half, then the cheese. I used about 6 ounces of pesto, and both cooked shrimp and crab meat. The final product was quite good, still maybe a bit oily for me. I also didn't use the whole pound of linguine, so there was a lot of sauce to noodle - that's my fault! I served it with chopped red bell pepper on top, and would next time add some crushed red pepper flakes. Overall it was a real hit, though, as both boyfriend and 5-yr-old daughter enjoyed it. Hoping the leftovers will be equally delicious.
