I've made this twice now, and felt it was restaurant-quality both times! So very delicious! Preparation is easy, too. The first time, I made it as written, but tonight I sauteed fresh chopped spinach and sliced baby bella mushrooms together in a separate skillet, seasoned w/garlic, lemon pepper, and red pepper flakes, and added it to the shrimp mixture at the end, just before serving it over pasta. Yum, yum, yum!!

This was delicious, and very easy to prepare! It took less than 30min., as stated in the recipe. I doubled the amounts for the sauce, but used the same amount of shrimp, b/c I served it over cheese ravioli and needed more sauce. I didn't change anything in the recipe, but did add a can of sliced mushrooms (fresh would've been even better, but all I had was canned) when I sautéed the garlic, and 1 tsp. each of Italian Seasoning and dried parsley when I added the cream. We are a family of 3--including an 11 yr. old boy--and w/the ravioli, this was a complete meal, w/a little bit leftover, even. If I'd had fresh green beans or broccoli florets, I would've added them for color and nutrition. Definitely try this--it'll be like Olive Garden at your house! :)

VERY good but very rich. Next time I'll take Annabelle's suggestion of using thickened fat free half and half. It was so filling. Would be good with salmon or scallops or crab too I think.

I use fat free half and half thickened with cornstarch and serve the shrimp over whole wheat spaghetti noodles. Delicious!
