This was one of the greatest recipes I've ever made! I sauteed the peppers ten minutes longer than the recipe called for only because I like them softer. I also used the huge shrimp (alaskan or ?) Don't scrimp on the 2/3 cup heavy cream; it made all the difference! My boyfriend is very picky and he ate half the pot before he almost busted! This recipe could be sold in any restaurant! The sauce is incredible. It's definitely going to be the next thing I serve for company!

Love it. Easy to make as long as you cut ,measure and have everything ready before you start to cook. I used fat free sour cream instead of heavy cream. cooked noodles first as can be warmed again by running under hot water or in sauce. Was able to clean as I went with all of prep work done. Loved only needing two pans one for noodlles and the other for rest. I did add a full pound of each scallops and jumbo shrimp as we love our seafood. I will definately make again . Served with a salad and all came back for seconds.

I made this recipe for a crowd of 10. I omitted the peppers and used spinach instead. Everyone raved about the taste. It was a real crowd pleaser and I am going to make it again

This tasted fabulous! My son's girlfriend, who is a vegetarian, enjoyed the sauce without the seafood, on pasta. But, my kitchen was a big mess when I was finished (even more than usual) because I think the steps are more complicated than they need to be. I typed out the recipe a simpler way for my own reference and there were only 7 steps instead of 15. Basically, what I'd do next time (and there WILL be a next time) is: 1. Saute the garlic and mushrooms (yes, I added mushrooms) 2. Add the basil and oregano and the sun-dried tomatoes. 3. Add the broth, wine, and tomato paste. Simmer to thicken. 4. Add the peppers for a couple of minutes 5. Add the already cooked seafood 6. Add the cream and cheese. 7. Serve over pasta. I was looking for a seafood sauce for pasta that wasn't outrageously high in fat, but was very high in flavour. I certainly found it in this recipe! Thank you, Luai Aown, for a new favourite!
