Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Such an easy dish to make! Mine probably had more calories, because I cut the recipe down to feed 4, but increased the mascarpone to 8 ounces and the shrimp to 1 pound. Added a sprinkle of parmesan to top it off. We served this with a salad and garlic bread sticks. Delicious!

We seriously enjoyed this flavorful shrimp pasta dish. Served with baked Italian bread and salad, it was luscious!

I scaled this back for 1 serve but used about 3 ounces of prawns instead of the 2 ounces recommended otherwise made as per recipe and have enough pasta left over for lunch today, just need to add more prawns and quick zap in the microwave should do it, thank you TeresaS for a great recipe, made for For Your Consideration tag game.

Fancy and delicious. I made just one portion for myself. I didn't have any white wine, so I used cognac. So I flambé the shrimp in it. My fettuccine were homemade, since I had leftover dough from http://www.recipezazz.com/recipe/ricotta-ravioli-with-zucchini-cream-sauce-25026
