"Loved this! easy to make, good flavor. Next time I will add 1/2 cup of heavy cream to finish. Also fresh cremini mushrooms. EDIT:. Made with the fried mushrooms and half cup heavy cream. This was awesome! Have recommended this to friends, and they are loving it too!"

"Wow! This is delicious, the rosemary and garlic with shrimp are just terrific. The whole wheat pasta and spinach give a great nutritional boost. This will definitely be a recipe I use again and again."
