This is the first time I have ever cooked, or eaten for that matter, shrimp. I LOVED it! The flavor was really amazing. I used 5 cloves of garlic, italian parsley (fresh) and in a separate pan I sauteed some mushrooms in some olive oil, garlic, white wine, salt & pepper, and added them right at the end. All I had in the house was fettucini noodles, next time I will make sure to use the angle hair as I think it would have been a better match for the recipe. This was a big hit in my house. Thanks for the post, I will be serving this again.
