DIRECTIONS

  • Boil and salt a large pot of water and cook your pasta.
  • While your pasta is cooking, cook your shrimp if necessary and reserve. If your shrimp are pre-cooked and frozen, quickly thaw them under running water.
  • In a large skillet melt 2 tbsp of butter over medium heat and saute mushrooms until soft and brown.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Reserve cooked mushrooms and melt remaining butter in the skillet. Add minced garlic, cream cheese, and herbs.
  • The cream cheese doesn’t really melt and starts to look almost curdled, don’t worry about it! It will all smooth out and be wonderful when we add the water. I promise.
  • Simmer cream cheese mixture until well blended. Get a scoop of boiling pasta water from your noodle pot and mix it in, stirring quickly to smooth out the sauce.
  • Keep sauce hot and add shrimp and mushrooms, mix well and simmer (stirring often) until everything is hot and thickened, about 10 minutes-you wont ruin this sauce by accidentally boiling it so don’t worry.
  • Toss sauce with cooked noodles and serve.
