"Very tasty by following reviewer suggestions. I almost didn't make this since it isn't as low fat a recipe as I usually make, but I will definitely do again. I sauteed the mushrooms and shrimp togethe..." See morer with extra garlic and white wine and slightly undercooked since I knew they would cook more when added to the sauce. I used 8 oz cream cheese, extra basil, and instead of water used 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 white wine and the liquid from after the mushrooms and shrimp had sat. Also added parmesan. I think next time I will try with lower fat cream cheese just to see if I can get the same results. I can see doing this in the spring with salmon and aspargus. YUM!!!"

"This is absolutely amazing. I did have to add some milk to make the sauce because without it, it was just too thick (you could add some of the pasta water too...if you prefer). We loved this.
