Katharine Mongold: "Delicious!! I will make it again for sure!" Read More


  • 8 ounces fettuccine (or linguine)
  • 10 tablespoons butter (divided, I know, but I’ve tried it with less and it’s just not the same)
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (fresh)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 3 ounces cream cheese (cut into small pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil (chopped, you can use dried herbs if that’s all you have)
  • 2/3 cup boiling water (from your noodle pot)
  • 1 pound cooked shrimp (feel free to buy frozen-gasp!)
  • Did you make this?

    Overall my family loved it. The sauce did not thicken like the instructions said but it still taste great. Will definitely cook this dish again.

    Turned out well, but only served 3 people, not 4. I would also suggest adding spinach or some other vegetable. The pasta was a bit lacking in color.
    Used macaroni instead of fettuccine. It’s a really nice dish considering that it doesn’t take that long to prepare.

    At first, the sauce wasn’t thick enough, but when I added the pasta it turned out great! I added some spinach too and it was really good

    This was so good and easy to make!! I already had some pasta noodles pre-cooked and shrimp thawed. I cooked and ate this in under 30 mins lol. I added some Mrs Dash chicken blend, Italian seasoning, dried parsely and cracked black pepper for extra flavor. Im going to try this next time with spaghetti squash. Came out!!

    I had to make some changes to the recipe, such as seasoning the shrimp prior to cooking, adding more cream cheese, etc. Then I felt it was lacking in some flavor. I prefer an Alfredo sauce to this sauce.

    Delicious. Used 1 stick of butter and 8 oz cream cheese. 12oz bag of cooked shrimp, tails removed. Spiced with basil and herb de Provence. Used rigatoni no 86 instead of linguine. And sprinkled shaved Parmesan just before serving.

    Delicious! Would definitely recommend for a quick prep dinner. I added about 1 tsp lemon juice to the sauce and a sprinkle when serving

    great recipe. I've made this twice and my family loves it. A great alternative for my latose intolerant husband who can have cream cheese without it bothering him.

    It was fine taste wise but the cheese sauce was not enough and the cream cheese stayed curdled even tho i stirred it forever. I also had to add a whole block of cream cheese and 2 cups of water. Everyone I made it for loved it. Over all i may make it again in the future.
