Success! I didn't grow up eating "white" sauces, but I needed something to highlight leftover shrimp and dungeness crab that wouldn't overpower those flavors. I followed the directions exactly w/ the exceptions of adding the uncooked shrimp in the beginning and adding sliced fresh mushrooms just because I had them and thought they'd be nice. I added the mushrooms and peeled precooked shrimp after the sauce had thickened (I had no problem w/ thickening) and parsley and salt had been added (not much salt needed, I thought). I let those heat through on very low heat while pasta cooked. I added a little cream to thin and at the last minute before adding cooked pasta, I added the crab and very gently turned it to keep it from breaking apart. Added the pasta, again turned very gently and... Success! This was VERY good. Thank you, MamaTiff!
