This was the best seafood pasta we've had in a long time! I did add a few things like fresh diced tomatoes and mushrooms as someone else had posted. I also used a shallot along with the green onions, added extra garlic and thickened sauce with cornstarch. I will never buy store-bought alfredo sauce again. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!
I followed the recipe exactly and I haved to say, I am disappointed. It was very bland and even with the 2 tbsp cornstarch it just doesn't get creamy at all. I won't make it again.
MMM, I really liked this recipe. I added Fresh chopped clams, tomatoes, and Portabella mushrooms. I also added a bit more Garlic, and used the corn starch. I Like my sause a bit thicker. I don't think you need quite a table spoon though. I will use a bit less next time, you can add some more if you still think it is to thin. I can't wait to have this recipe again, and the wife was in heaven with it. Goes great with some Garlic bread, and ceaser Salad. MMM A+++++
Delicious. Used 5 Tbsp butter, heavy cream in lieu of half-and-half, added snapper pieces and sea scallops with the green onion, added shrimp a couple minutes later. Steamed mussels on the side in wine and garlic, and added them on top of the finished dish.
This is the perfect "basic" sauce to build upon. Since moving west from New England, I've been on a quest for culinary zest. I added the following ingredients, giving the dish a bigger personality and a good kick: white wine, sauteed onions, chopped and seeded tomato, crushed red pepper, garlic pepper, fresh chopped basil and spicy oregano from my garden. Hoo Hah! It was a big hit.
OH MY GOSH!!!!! This was outstanding. The only things we changed per other reviewers was a 1/2 cup wine, and some sliced mushrooms with the onions and garlic (maybe one or two more cloves of garlic) everything else the same soooooooooooo good thank you for a wonderful recipe!
This is an amazing recipe!!! We loved it, the consistency and flavor were perfect. We will definately be having this again. *NOTE* use fresh grated parmesan....it makes all the difference.
This recipe needed a bit more zing..I added a few seasonings to spice it up. I also halfed the amount of seafood, adding only half pounds of each and I thought the amout was just fine. Very easy and delicious!
