Since the submitter invites substitutions to her recipe in the introduction, I did. I substituted white wine and heavy cream for the water, and added some beautiful green beans with a bell pepper medley leftover from a restaurant evening out last night. I added a glug of white wine to the mushrooms once they were cooked with the garlic and let that reduce almost completely. Next came the (raw) shrimp. which I cooked only a minute or two, knowing they would cook further once I added the cream cheese, butter and cream. Once the mixture was creamy and smooth. I tossed in the leftover green beans and kept it on the stove until it all was heated through, adjusting the thickness of the sauce, as needed, with reserved pasta water. The sauce was rich and creamy, very good, but not something I'd want to indulge in often. I'm not sure I would have tolerated this well had I not mitigated the richness of it by adding a good amount of vegetables.
