I have first made this over 10 years ago. I do add a bit of garlic salt and some other seasoning to give it a bit more zip. I'd also recommend more lime. The garlic and cheese will stick to the bottom of the pan so it needs to be stirred well.

I used lemon juice instead of lime (what I had on hand), and mushrooms & summer squash for the veggies. Also ended up mixing the pasta, milk, cheese, and some extra lemon juice (no zest in-house) together, but then added them directly to the shrimp/veggie mixture and mixed everything together. Pretty tasty. Will have to try it w/ lime sometime.

I don't eat pasta so I substituted the spaghetti for broccoli & simply sprinkled the broccoli with parmesan cheese. I didn't have snow peas, so I used sweet peas. This was a DELICIOUS recipe!!! I will definitely make this again. It was incredibly flavorful & I think it's relatively healthy. YUMMY!
