    Dawnab's Note:

    This is a lovely pasta dish with a creamy sauce. Shrimp and Snow peas complement each others flavors very well. Shortcut note: I keep pesto frozen in my freezer to make this. I put the veggies in a handheld strainer and poach them in the same pot as the pasta is cooking in.

      My husband loved this. I omitted the tabasco and used 1 minced fresh jalapeno added to the sauce with the garlic. I also used fresh chopped cilantro instead of parsley and doubled the amount of red pepper. To cut the cholesterol a little I used 2 Cups of 2% milk and 1 Cup of cream. Great basic recipe.

      I thought this was really good. It took me way longer than 30 mins. I used tapitos hot sauce because I didn't have any tabasco. NOT hot in the least. Don't be scared to use it. Thank you!
