      This was amazing tonight thanks Paula. We are currently travelling in what Australians call "the outback" so we have to use what we can get. We bought 5kg of prawns recently, but they are smaller than you wanted and we also had a thin spaghetti rather than fettuccini. I used a tablespoon of balsamic and one of oil for the vinaigrette and regular vine ripened tomatoes. We love sauce, so I added in a quarter cup of pasta water at the end to extend the prawn, tomato, cream cheese mix. This is one of those dishes I wish had never finished or I could eat again tomorrow.

      All I can say is this was ABSOLUTELY wonderful! Made exactly as written and loved it. Thank you for a great and easy recipe. Can't wait to try this with clams - bet that would also be good! Edited to add: Made this again with scallops -- equally wonderful! Another 5 stars!

      this was so easy. I did not have any basil so i used some cream cheese with herbs in it. This was very yummy. This will be a regular in my menus. Thanks Paula G
