Creamy Tomato Shrimp with Penne

This creamy pasta dish looks and tastes like it’s meant for festive occasions but only takes 20 minutes to make. As Cassie says, “People love this entree's flavor and think it’s complicated, but jarred sauces make it so fast.” Cassie Conrad - Prescott Valley, AZ

    After reading reviews, I switched out the spaghetti sauce and made Knorr Parma Rosa sauce, as well as using Knorr Alfredo sauce, as I don't care for the bottled Alfredo. I added a bit more garlic and we really liked the red pepper flakes. This turned out excellent and will definitely make again.

    This is good. It turned out very creamy. I left out the shrimp because I didn't have any. It's a new favorite at our house.

    Everyone loved this Shrimp recipe. It was so easy to make & had just enough kick to it from the crushed red pepper. Will definitely make this gain!!

    Absolutely scrumptious. This has become a family favourite. I had a bottle of rose sauce, so I used that instead of spaghetti sauce. The second time I made it, I used the spaghetti sauce. Everyone agreed that the rose sauce gave the dish a much better flavour.

    I will definitely be making this again! It was so delicious and simple and quick to make. The hubby even liked it and he isn't a fan of shrimp that isn't breaded and deep fried! Plus it tastes just as good the next day.
