Reviews for Shrimp Penne with Garlic Sauce for Two
"I have fixed this recipe a few times and my husband and I love it, the nice thing about it is there aren't alot of leftovers."
"What an easy meal! The flavor was amazing. For me, precooked shrimp is preferred as I was not a fan of having to clean them. The sauce is very creamy and the seafood seasoning added another dimension."
