    When is the cheese added and what cheese is it? Shredded? Sometimes I find that parmesan is too strong?

    Quite delicious and oh-so easy! I added about 1/4 cup white wine whisked with a dash of cornstarch to thicken and add savoriness. A big hit with the hubs and I'll be making this again and again.

    Made the recipe as written, with fresh Roma tomatoes from our garden. My husband's reaction from his first bite..."mmmm..." it truly is good; definitely a keeper!

    Made this pretty according to recipe, other than I used a can of petite diced seasoned tomatoes since its March and no fresh 'maters here. I also put it over polenta instead of pasta. The missus of 48 years said I better make it again! Fantastico!

    I made this tonight. Words cannot describe how delicious it was. I followed the recipe as written. My husband and I devoured the whole dinner ourselves. If you like shrimp and garlic, I would definitely double this recipe for 4 adults.

    So quick and easy! I used spaghetti and canned tomatoes, a 420 gr tin. Otherwise, exactly as directed.. oh, I added a chopped onion, I like onions... This was fresh, tasty and with a pleasant bite, it made a marvellous Friday night supper when I wanted something that little bit special, but didn't feel like hours of cooking! Lovely, Thanks Connie!

    I made some minor modifications - I used a combination of Earth Balance & EVOO instead of butter. I also added some sliced baby portabello mushroom which I sauted after removing the shrimp from the pan - I removed the mushrooms to the same plate as the shrimp while preparing the sauce. I also subbed fresh basil for the parsley. Delicious. My husband loved it too!
