"I loved this! My husband was a bit more lukewarm on it, thinking we had some other shrimp pasta recipes that stood out more. To me, the flavors were unique while tasting light, despite the cream. I'll definitely make again."

"Made a double batch of this for dinner last night and eating leftovers for lunch right now! Its delicious and fast to make.

As for those bemoaning the lack of nutritional information, I agree that its nice to have that. However, we don't always get that with everything we eat. This dish has butter, pasta and cream. Its not going to be low in calories, so consider it a splurge."

"This was a delicious and fast weeknight meal. Made it exactly as written other then using half and half in place of the heavy cream and absolutely loved it. I will be making again and again. Simple yet elegant for company also. Definitely worth making:)"

"This sounds delicious but I never try recipes that don't give the nutritional values. We list it for some, why don't we do it for all recipes?"

"I live in Florida and we eat a lot of shrimp. I have made umpteen sauces for shrimp, but I didn't even think of making one with mustard. As a volunteer field editor, I am happy to say this recipe is spectacular."
