Some comments about Creamy Garlic Shrimp and Pasta
Love this recipe! I added steamed fresh broccoli florets, awesome!
I fixed this meal for my husband and family, and they thoroughly enjoyed. I too was most impressed with it as well. I did add a couple of things: Italian Seasoning, Salt, Pepper for more flavor. Thank you for a fine dish for this garlic shrimp.
I decided to add chicken to this recipe. I did a little cooking spray in a frying pan with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. I did the pasta and Garlic shrimp and pasta separate as I used regular (not refrigerated) linguine and precooked, frozen shrimp. Defrosted the garlic shrimp and pasta & added to boiling pasta for about the last minute of cooking. Then, of course, combined them all together. The sauce was absolutely delicious!!
I made this but made a few changes. I didn’t use wine or broth, just used the milk I had in the fridge. I also added Cajun seasoning for a little additional seasoning. It was AWESOME!
Made this last night. We thought it was very good. I used wine as mentioned in the receipt instead of the chicken broth. I also added a bit of chive and onion cream cheese and already chopped garlic. Will make garlic shrimp and pasta again.
Okay, so let’s go forward. Let’s learn this recipe for the creamy garlic shrimp and pasta.
