Wonderful and very similar to Olive Gardens dish. My boyfriend loved it. Make sure to use heavy whipping cream, and i used 1 cup instead and added a little extra wine and butter to the sauce, as well as mushrooms.

Absolutely wonderful! i made one change to accommodate a picky eater, instead of mixing in the tomatoe mixture in with the pasta and sauce, i added them to the shrimp as i still had them frying to cook the tomatoes, which added a nice thorough flavor to the shrimp. i then added it to the pasta and layer it between mozzarella and sauce. Definitely a must try and enjoy again and again!

Since we do not have an Olive Garden we search out recipes from there. This turned out really good - I used "Giant" shrimp- pinked up in the microwave without added spices since I was not sure how the pasta would be - and the pasta was great with it. The flavors of the sauce perked up the shrimp when I stirred them in before serving to heat through.
