Made this tonight and it was FANTASTIC! Only deviation was marinated the shrimp overnight in garlic infused olive oil. The corn starch put a nice crisp on the shrimp and it was great. Wife loved it and she is a picky eater. Great recipe!! -GUEST FOODIE

I agree with everyone else, it was better than the dish I got at the Spaghetti Factory; I am sure I used more Mizithra than called for. -JIMPETO

About These CopyCat RecipesThese copycat recipes are submitted by home cooks, chefs, and even directly from restaurants. In some cases they are original recipes, and in others they are an attempt at an acceptable clone of your restaurant favorites. Some national restaurants vary their menus and recipes based on region, so the recipe you see here may not be what you are used to. For example, the dish you get at a restaurant in Minnesota might have different seasonings or sauces than what that same restaurant chain would offer in Texas.
Sometimes it's difficult to exactly duplicate a restaurant recipe at home without all the amenities of a commercial kitchen, but these recipes do their best to copy the same flavors, textures, and visual appeal that the restaurants offer.
