Red Lobster Shrimp Pasta

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by KitKat54

This is a copycat recipe, but it's delicious. I used a pinot grigio wine but you could substitute chicken broth if you didn't want to use alcohol.

This recipe was perfect, but there is one thing missing - two tablespoons of cream cheese. The one thing I love about the dish at Red Lobster is how creamy it is and when I made this for the first time, my 'sauce' was thin. I searched around on the Internet until I found what was called "Red Lobster Alfredo Sauce" and it had these exact same ingredients but with two tablespoons of cream cheese. After I added that, perfection! It can be added to the dish when the heavy cream is placed into the pan, and heated until smooth.
