Very tasty by following reviewer suggestions. I almost didn't make this since it isn't as low fat a recipe as I usually make, but I will definitely do again. I sauteed the mushrooms and shrimp together with extra garlic and white wine and slightly undercooked since I knew they would cook more when added to the sauce. I used 8 oz cream cheese, extra basil, and instead of water used 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 white wine and the liquid from after the mushrooms and shrimp had sat. Also added parmesan. I think next time I will try with lower fat cream cheese just to see if I can get the same results. I can see doing this in the spring with salmon and aspargus. YUM!!!
it seems so many folks love this...and yes it is good. my problem is it calls for too much water. i made as written...too watery for my taste. halve the water and it would be better. i won't waste shrimp again here, though.
This could be a restaurant quality recipt with a few exceptions: Increase shrimp 1 lb., use cremini mushrooms, use fresh basil increase to 1/3cp and use flat leaf parsley. Double the garlic. Add 1/4 cp Marsala before adding shrimp and mushrooms. Serve with garlic bread.
This is absolutely amazing. I did have to add some milk to make the sauce because without it, it was just too thick (you could add some of the pasta water too...if you prefer). We loved this. This would be perfect for company because it has great visual presence. One of our favorite recipes from this site up to date. Thank you for the post.
Awesome recipe! I used white wine and boiling water with 8oz of cream cheese and the sauce was delicious. Also, using a wire whisk to break up the lumps of cheese in the pan really helps. Yummy and simple.
I can't tell you how many times I've made this recipe. Its amazingly easy and you'll get rave reviews from anyone who hasn't tried it yet. The best part of this recipe is you can change it to your liking, add mushrooms or if you don't like them, use another vegetable like broccoli or asparagus or even pea pods! I always add extra garlic just because I REALLY love garlic. The recipe calls for shrimp, but I've also used chicken for this and pasta possibilities are endless! Penne, cavatapi, fusilli, linguini, fettuccini.. I've even used chinese lomein noodles (for extra protein). Fresh cracked black pepper to top this is a must it truly brings out the flavor of everything. Go ahead, try this recipe and post your combination and thoughts! :)
OOOHHH so good! This is another great recipe! I added a chopped green onion, a chopped green bell pepper and 1 chicken breast chopped (in addition to the shrimp)when sauting the mushrooms. I also used cream cheese with chives. It was heavenly! I served with "Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad" and "Great Garlic Bread" also found on this site and the combination was better than any restraunt! I will be making this meal again!
OMG - Very good! A new favorite for my boyfriend and I! Per others - while sauting the mushrooms, I added 1/2 red & 1/2 green bell pepper (chopped), apprx 1 TBLS minced green onion and 1 chicken breast (chopped). I too used cream cheese w/ chives and added a splash of white wine (not the cooking kind wht wine!) to the sauce. It wasn't too thick like others complained about and the flavors were great. The addition of the xtra veggies made the dish look even more appealing! Served with garlic toast and you have yourself and great meal!! Thanks Karyn & All Recipes!!
