Made this morning as a trial run as I want to serve on Easter Sunday. Fantastic recipe as is. For personal taste I will add more tomatoes and garlic.

Serving size was perfect for two people, but the seasonings were too overpowering even after cutting the amount I added in half. I'll make it again, but use the seasonings sparingly.

As a volunteer feild editor with Taste of Home magazine this was one of the BEST pasta dishes I've ever prepared! Restaurant quality!! Even though short on tomato, it was one of the easiest shrimp and pasta dinners prepared at home. Great pasta dish that wasn't heavy feeling. Perfect hearty portions for two. Feel free to double up on mushrooms, they cook down. A must try recipe for shrimp, veggie and pasta lovers!

Great recipe! I doubled it for the most part to get rid of everything. Followed as directed, except forgot the parmesan cheese and had to use some asparagus that I froze.
