"Wonderful meal! The only addition I made was double the garlic. A meal where people are too busy enjoying the food to speak."

"Absolutely delicious! I loved the suggestion of the reviewer to add sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, and crab. I also used about 6 cloves of garlic for the flavor we love. There is alot of sauce.... so I added about a pound more shrimp, and we chose to use linguine instead of penne pasta. Worked great, and my family gave it rave reviews! It will be regular recipe on our table!"

"I made this tonight for my son and I and doubled the recipe for leftovers for my husband. We both liked it! It was kind of soupy but that may have been my fault because I put a little too much milk in it. I might freeze the extra sauce and "remake" it later with shrimp again or crab or chicken."

"This was totally delicious! I used cheese tortellini rather than the penne pasta, shredded Italian blend cheese, and uncooked shrimp because it is what I had on hand. I also didn't have chicken broth so I disolved 2 chicken boulon cubes in about 1-1/2 cups of water. Also added a little more garlic because in taste testing the sauce, I didn't think it had enough. Could also add a small amount of pepper to it for a little kick. There was plenty of sauce I probably could have used 2 packages of tortellini."

"This is wonderful! Tonight we had it with saute mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and crab added. Sprinkled with cayenne pepper and it gave it a great flavor!"
