Followed the basic idea of this recipe, with a few modifications to suit what I had on hand. I had refrigerated tortellini that needed to be used. Made the sauce according to the recipe, except I replaced the dried basil & parsley (I don't think they add much flavor) with a heaping spoonful of my homemade pesto sauce. Because of the Parmesan in the pesto, I didn't sprinkle any over the top. This was lucky because I had run out :( We all loved this recipe - I even found myself eating it cold from the refrigerator the following day. 2nd review: I had made another recipe with shrimp. leeks & linguine for which the sauce was not enough. I liked this sauce better, and made up a recipe. It improved the other dish remarkably!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thaw frozen shrimp in fridge or run under cold water.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguine, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes (according to package); drain.
  3. While linguine is cooking, heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and saute garlic about 1 minute. Mix in chicken broth, wine, lemon juice, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat, and simmer until liquid is reduced by about 1/2.
  4. Mix shrimp, butter, parsley, and basil into the saucepan. Cook 1 minute, until shrimp is coated and warmed. Stir in the cooked linguine, and continue cooking 2 minutes, until well coated. Sprinkle with parmesan and serve.
