Shrimp and Portobello Mushroom Fettuccine

Recipe by  

"This is an easy dish and can be made with different variations. It's also good with chicken breasts, or other seafood such as crawfish tails, scallions or crab meat. Also great with angel hair pasta instead of fettuccine noodles. Sliced white mushrooms can be used if preferred. Hope you enjoy as much as my family does!"

This dish had an excellent flavor, I wanted to rate it 5 stars but it did need a little fixing. First, I used only half cream and half milk but it was WAY too thick. Next try I used milk and no cream and it was perfect. I balked at the lb of mushrooms, but it's a perfect amount. Also, just personal preference, I used half shrimp and half scallops. Exquisite! I would serve this for company.

So disappointed when I make something and then rate it low. So VERY bland. Made it as per recipe, but added two extra cloves of garlic. Had to add salt and pepper after serving up to give it some sort of flavor. Just did not do it for us....

I never have cream on hand, so I used 1% milk instead, and it was fine. The cream cheese still gave it that "creamy" mouth feel. I also don't keep "cajun seasoning" on hand, so I used 1/4 tsp. each of paprika, cayenne red pepper, black pepper, onion powder, and salt. The cayenne was really what pushed this recipe over the top - combined with the creaminess, it made a really interesting sauce.

I made this recipe for my fiance and his family. They said it tasted like something from a restaurant. The only alteration I made was that I used regular sized portobello mushrooms and I used 3/4 whipping cream and 1 and 1/4 cup skim milk. It was still very rich and has a little kick. I highly recommend it!

Pretty good! And amazingly easy. But I didn't make it as written. I cooked the onions/mushrooms, then removed them, wiped out the pan (or sauce will be greyish brown), and then melted the butter and added the flour. Let it cook several minutes to cook out the flour taste,then added the garlic (extra!) and spices. Let it cook a few minutes, then melted in the cream cheese and slowly added the cream. Added the mushrooms/onions. Yum! Also~ I subbed spaghetti squash for pasta to make it a bit healthier.

OMG this was so good. It made 6 very large servings, we are 4 and we ate it for dinner one nite and then we all ate it for lunch the next day too. This was a very simple recipe and we made it just as posted except the type of pasta - i was out of fettuccini noodles. We will be making this part of our regular monthly menu.

I made this last night for my husband's birthday. I used cookie_cooker's suggestions to melt the butter, then add the flour and cook for a couple of minutes before adding the cream cheese and cream. The only seasoning I used was Tony Chachere's (I'm from Louisiana, so it's a staple in my pantry). I used the whole pint of whipping cream, but I did have to add milk (I have 2%) to thin it a little. This was delicious, and quick! I was kind of scared to try it because a couple of people rated it so low...DON'T LISTEN TO THEM!!! My neighbor ate with us and kept saying how much better than the Olive Garden this was. I can't believe how good this tasted, considering it only took me 30-40 min. to make. Thank you so much!!!

MMMM, MMMM!! Prepared exactly as directed, but had to use mozzarella cheese instead of Parmesan. Restaurant quality! Shrimp and portobellos go so great together.
