I received an email this morning with a few Olive Garden Copycat recipes in it. Here is one of them that I don't see posted on Zaar yet.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook one minute. Add remaining spice and tomato ingredients, stir well and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saute pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Saute vegetables about 3 minutes until crisp - tender. Add to the sauce and simmer 5 minutes more.
  3. Cook pasta according to directions. When pasta is almost done, stir shrimp into sauce to heat through. Do not boil. Spoon Primavera over hot linguine. Pass Parmesan cheese.

Update: Copycat comparison did not measure up but as a good recipe they all liked it and since I made a double recipe with 3 pounds of shrimp there was plenty for the second night.

I couldn't find Newburg sauce so I left it out. It was still fabulous and tasted very much like the Olive Garden version! My son (who tends to be a bit of a picky eater) even loved it. Thanks for the recipe!

I couldn't find Newburg sauce mix, so I used alfredo sauce mix.

It was an excellent pasta, colorful and satisfying. I'm not familiar with the Olive Garden version, so I can't say how close it is to theirs. But on its own, this is a really nice one-dish dinner that I will definitely make again.
