I have been on a shrimp kick lately - I just can't seem to get enough! Thankfully, TOH has many recipes to choose from. I usually don't review a recipe that I have altered, but I felt this one deserved it. My review is for the recipe with the following changes: added 8 oz mushrooms sauteed in butter, and added 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese .

This dish was better than some of the Italian restaurants that we have visited. We absolutely loved it. The 1st time I made it, I used the amount of seafood seasoning required but it was a little too spicy for my daughter. The second time I made it I reduced the amount of seasoning and it was great. If you have a taste for shrimp alfredo without the extra calories, this is the dish.

All we added was mushrooms and used parmesan cheese instead of mozzarella. Perfect meal!!!

I thought this was absolutely heavenly! I did up the garlic to 3 cloves because I'm a garlic lover and I used fat-free half & half and it worked wonderfully. Thanks for an awesome dish!!

The fat-free version tends to curdle or burn quickly in my experience but I've never tried it in this recipe, could be worth a shot!
