    Great dinner! I would come down on spice and add shrimp at the last minute so it does over cook. But my family loved it and it’s a keeper recipe!😊

    We like spicy food so I added about a 1/4 teaspoon cayenne. It was absolutely delicious and easy to make. I've made this recipe twice ... the first time I used packaged shredded parmesan which did not melt properly. I discovered that the pre-shredded cheese is processed with a coating to prevent it from clumping together in the package. That coating affects the consistency of the melted cheese. Others may already know this but I stumbled across the fact through other recipe questions/answers and it was news to me. That said, I grated my own parm on the second try and it came out perfectly. Will definitely keep this recipe and make it again. It was really, really good!

    it turned out really good. although i didn't toss it as I wanted some leftovers and the sauce turns solid when it's refrigerated. i also added onion powder, red onions and garlic powder to add more flavor. definitely making again. family loved it

    Delicious! Added Cajun smoked sausage and fresh spinach. Cooked the sausage in the butter before I added the shrimp and added the spinach with the cream. Will definitely be making this again.

    Very easy to make.. I didn’t put the red peppers and I love garlic , so I added a little bit more... Instead of linguini I used three cheese tortellini ( sorry hahaha I used what I had in my pantry).

    This recipe was very tasty even my family members that normally don’t like white sauce really liked this recipe. I look forward to making this pasta again.

    Could almost eat the entire pot! Loved the sauce. I replaced half the cream with milk to cut down the calories. Added capers, cherry tomatoes, and topped it all with dried parsley. Delicious!
