Reviews for Shrimp Monterey
"After reading other reviews, I added extra garlic, butter and chicken broth. Then I added the cooked pasta to the pan before putting it all in the oven. My husband couldn't say enough how much he enjoyed this meal."
"Very easy great flavor I severed over pasta . A must try"
"Excellent. Peeling and deveining the shrimp weren't my favorite part but we picked up fresh shrimp at the docks while the boats came in when we were on vacation at the beach. It doesn't get much better than that."
"I made this a couple of months ago and loved it. Making it again tonight. Yummo!"
"quick and cheesy -I mean easy ;) Was looking for something like this for dinner and it was perfect. Even the picky eaters! Works great with pasta."
"quick fast tastes great"
"This wasn't nearly as good as I'd hoped. Somehow seafood and cheese just never turns out good."
"Have made this a few times. Each time trying to get more sauce to put over pasta. Very good flavor. Really like it."
"A perfect dish to have for a special occasion."
"The shrimp was great!! I poured it over some white rice and I doubled up the sauce to pour onto the rice. Everyone loved it and ate them right up."
