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.
My daughter and I loved it and I have been looking for the recipe. Thank you,
I have been making a version of this for over a decade. I add sweet white wine when the vegetables are almost done and simmer it, "light boil" until it has reduced at least half of the wine. I also use fresh basil and San Marsano canned tomatoes whenever possible, they are grown by the ocean in Italy in a volcanic ash soil. They get a salty flavor from the sea breeze and the soil adds to the flavor. Awesome sauce!!!! Pun intended.
Very very good! Have been searching for this recipe and thankful I finally found one that taste this good. I did leave out the Newburg Sauce Mix and it was still very good. I was told that Knorr no longer make it.
