Although the end result was at least edible (after I added some salt and pepper), it was NOT like Red Lobster's Shrimp Linguini Alfredo, so seek another recipe if that is what you want. Aside from that, there were three problems. 1)The sautéed garlic, was over done by the time the shrimp finished cooking, it should have been done after the shrimp. 2)The sauce doesn't thicken, ever. 3)No salt? No pepper? Really???
Yum! This was super simple and delish. I didn't use the shrimp this time because I was serving it with Healthier Chicken Marsala. Thanks for sharing, Lynn. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.
Outstanding dish !!! I made 2 variations with 2 serving each.. I made the recipe as posted for DW, and I and I replaced the shrimp with chicken, for the kids. It made for a great lunch, and will make again.. Made for Zaar Stars.
