Very good. I tripled the garlic just because we like it.And used raw shrimp cooked right in tbe butter. I didn't have fresh parsley so I used jar. Easy to make also.

So I bought a boatload of great prawns yesterday and used 1/2 for dinner. When I announced I was making prawns for dinner/football appetizers tonight, guess what the family wanted!? Funny, I was out of fresh Parmesan yesterday and subbed shredded Monteray Jack. Super good accident! So did the same tonight. You can easily say this family loves this recipe! Thank you for sharing, Virginia!

Wonderful meal! The only addition I made was double the garlic. A meal where people are too busy enjoying the food to speak.

Absolutely delicious! I loved the suggestion of the reviewer to add sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, and crab. I also used about 6 cloves of garlic for the flavor we love. There is alot of sauce.... so I added about a pound more shrimp, and we chose to use linguine instead of penne pasta. Worked great, and my family gave it rave reviews! It will be regular recipe on our table!

I made this tonight for my son and I and doubled the recipe for leftovers for my husband. We both liked it! It was kind of soupy but that may have been my fault because I put a little too much milk in it. I might freeze the extra sauce and "remake" it later with shrimp again or crab or chicken.
