    I made this for dinner tonight using fresh dill, minced garlic and fat free evaporated milk. The sauce was a little thicker than I liked so I may add a little more evaporated milk next time. But the flavor was right on. Thanks for a quick and easy meal that the whole family enjoyed.

    Delicious and fast! I really enjoyed the dill and the creaminess of the sauce. I will definitely make this recipe again. Thanks so much for posting!

    This is fantastic! I've made it twice now. It's like shrimp scampi alfredo! Yum! I use cooked, defrosted shrimp and just add the shrimp after the sauce is completely made and then add the pasta. I do find the sauce a tad thick, too. I may do 1/4 cup skim milk and 1/4 half & half next time. Thank you so much for posting this. This will become a regular in our house. It's so easy to put together.

    This is quite good and quite quick--two very good things in my house! Frying the shrimp in butter (well, Smart Balance for me) really took the flavor to a whole new level; they really took on that salty butteriness and were so much tastier for it. I used more garlic (didn't measure, maybe double?), whole milk instead of half and half, and fat free cream cheese. All these subs seemed to work just fine, and the result was a truly tasty supper. Thanks for posting, Teresa!

    Love prawns, and particularly loved the choice of lemon juice, garlic and dill. A great blend of flavours and the angel hair pasta was the perfect choice of pasta for this dish. Except for using unsalted butter instead of margarine which I never use in cooking and doubling the garlic, I made this exactly to the recipe. I used the evaporated milk option. I served this together with another pasta dish and several other dishes to lunch guests who really loved it: they all came back for seconds and I'll certainly be making it again. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Teresa. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
