I am going to give this 3 stars right now but that may change once I fix it again but only a littl differently. I had to do some research on what Hard Dry Cider and I found out is something like an apple wine, the "Hard" is a way of saying that it is an alcoholic drink so since I did not have any of that I used a dry white wine and did not change the amount. This is what I will do different next time...use a different wine and cut down the amount, cook the pasta only 7 minutes and then add the shrimp and let it cook. Reason why is because the pasta was over cooked at 15 minutes and the extra cooking time for the shrimp just added to the over cooking. My husband like it so I will fix it again with these changes. Thanks

This recipe is GREAT! It reminds me of a pasta I get from a restaurant called Pizza Mizza. I added in a few extra garlic cloves and bacon to the recipe and omitted the celery. I must say again it was fabulous!

I made this for Valentines Day, and overall it was pretty good! I used whole wheat pasta, and instead of celery I used zucchini (my partner hates celery). He has requested this again!

This was suprisingly tasty, really quite good - will make again. I thought it might be soupy with the liquid ingrediants - but not at all, just a nice sauce!
