    MellieButterfly's Note:

    This is a copycat recipe from the Cheesecake Factory that I found online. It is not exact, but so close that I give it a 9.75 compared to the 10 that is the CF dish. I am very pleased with how it turns out. Bon appetit! The recipe is a little high maintenance, but the end product is worth the work. :)

      When on vacation in a city that have a Cheesecake Factory, I always dine there and order the Bistro Shrimp Pasta (often I order double to take some back home!). I was glad to come across this recipe.<br/>Overall, it's a good pasta dish. The Basil and Lemon gives a nice taste to the sauce. I had to add extra pepper, Tabasco, and salt to give more seasoning. Also the prep time was longer than stated, about an extra 15 minutes. However, it didn't taste like the dish at Cheesecake factory.

      Made this tonight and couldn't be happier with the decision to try out this recipe!! This is a creamy/lemon-y taste of heaven that has just the right amount of EVERYTHING! It didn't take very long to make, and we had plenty of leftovers (I made it for just my husband and myself). I would definitely suggest this to anyone craving a seafood pasta - it's too good to pass up! Thanks for sharing it!
