    Emily Elizabeth's Note:

    The title speaks for itself! It is just a bit spicier than Outback's version if you use 3/4 tsp cayenne pepper.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Cook fettuccine as directed.
    2. 2
      Melt butter in a large skillet. Whisk in cream, ketchup and spices. Bring to a boil. Continue to simmer and reduce while you continue with the rest of the recipe, stirring occasionally with a wire whisk. (most of the cream will boil away, leaving you with a dark orange sauce).
    3. 3
      Sauté mushrooms in a separate small skillet over medium to low heat, in olive oil until soft. Add mushrooms to simmering sauce.
    4. 4
      Cook shrimp (and crawfish if available) in the small skillet in olive oil just until pink and add to sauce.
    5. 5
      Simmer for about 5 minutes adding green onions for the last 2 minutes or so.
    6. 6
      In a large bowl, toss shrimp mixture with cooked and drained fettuccine and serve immediately, topping with finely shredded fresh parmesan (or romano) cheese.

      This used to be one of my favorite dishes at Outback when I wasn't in the mood for steak, but sadly it's been taken off the menu. Fortunately, I found this recipe before that happened and was able to verify that it matches the Outback version very closely.

      In other words: It's delicious. The ketchup seems like a weird addition (and I hate ketchup), but it gives the sauce the right color and a little hint of tomato product without changing the fact that it's a cream sauce. For best taste, make sure you use a good quality mushroom like the suggested baby portobellos (cremini) mushrooms.

      Many thanks for posting up this recipe! I just had our annual crawfish boil this weekend, and I've already got the leftover crawfish tails slated for a batch of Toowoomba pasta. ;)

      I am from Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia. Thanks to the creator of this recipe, I just found out about this dish, and I have to say, I am really amazed. Why the heck is it named after Toowoomba? Our town has absolutely no connection to pasta. Actually, most people who settled around here were of German decent, so if anything, I would expect a German dish named after us. We aren't really associated with prawns (shrimp) either, as we aren't really close to the coast and good quality prawns are usually expensive. Also, Toowoomba is not even in the "outback"... it's a city in south east Queensland, only a small drive away from Brisbane. Many of us that live here have never even been to the outback... It's as much of a mystery to us as it is to you guys. Our food isn't really any more exotic than what American food is either. It's kind of ironic, because we used to have a Texan steakhouse in our town, and over there, you guys are eating "Outback" steak. I must thank the creator of this dish for making me aware of Outback Steakhouse. It gave me a great laugh.

      Probably my MOST favorite recipe! Loaded with fat and calories but WELL worth the occasional splurge. This actually makes 6 to 8 good size servings, and best of all, it heats back up in the microwave the next day and still tastes delicious!!
