    My family loved it. We added jumbo shrimp and made more of the sauce to accommodate for that.

    I basically did everything the same but added about 1/2 tbsp of minced garlic to the shrimp. My family really enjoyed it! We added some parmesan cheese and it tasted really good!

    Will definitely make again. Delicious, but may add a bit of garlic next time. Allow to sit about 10 min to thicken a bit more before serving. I had parmesan cheese on table for those who wanted to add it!

    It’s pretty good. I had to use cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Used less salt and more heavy cream.

    Delicious! My husband and I loved it. Tasted like an entree from a restaurant. Added grated Parmesan before serving

    This turned out amazing! I had some pasta and heavy cream, but I was missing parmesan so I couldn’t make an Alfredo. However I had everything to make this and so I did and was pleased with the result!

    It didn’t taste spectacular or anything—just an average cream pasta. But it was very easy to make!

    Was not a fan of this. Although my father loved it, my mother and I did not like the sauce. The sauce also takes away the crispyness of the shrimp.

    Surprisingly good flavor even without the Cajun seasoning. I added a little flour to the sauce to help it thicken more. My husband loves this recipe!

    It was simple and light tasting. I changed two things. I used Less broth and add mascarpone cheese.

    Shrimp is delicious and has made its way into our regular menu! Didn’t care for the sauce so I pair it with homemade Alfredo. YUM!
