      Oh, but this is good! This is one of those things that could be described as "comfort food with a gourmet touch," as it's pleasantly indulgent with treats like shrimp and pesto. We used firm, dark Crimini mushrooms and they fit in beautifully. Made with pleasure for PRMR.

      Restaurant quality for sure! I knew this would be tasty just by reading the ingredients but it was REALLY tasty. The sauce was delicious. I kept tasting just to make sure it was that good! I used 2 pounds of shrimp, but other than that, kept the recipe as is. Both my food-loving teenage DSs gobbled this down with yums and not much talking. That's always a good sign. Thanks so much for a fairly quick weeknight dinner as well as one I woould be proud to serve to company!

      All I can say is WOW! I never would have thought this combintion of ingredients would meld together so well. I was hunting for a recipe to use with shrimp. My homemade summer pesto stocked in the freezer and off I went. I addedc a touch of white wine. Thanks for a fine Sunday supper.
