This dish is highlighted by shrimp and mushrooms sauteed in port wine and a creamy garlic sauce over angel hair pasta. Delicious! Enjoy with your favorite wine, tossed green salad, and garlic bread, if desired.

I gave it three stars for potential. ALthough the combination of ingredients have potential, the directions are not very well worded. Don't cook the pasta first because the sauce takes about 30 minutes. Also, REDUCE THE ALCOHOL before adding the heavy cream. Otherwise, you might need to serve this dish in a martini glass!

This recipe is very good. I made a low fat version--used low fat marg. and evap. milk. Skipped the mushroom and shallots and sugar. My sauce was pretty thin though because of the evap. milk. I used pre-cooked shrimp. Do not let shrimp heat too long or else they REALLY shrivel up. I will definitely make this again!

There are many better shrimp and mushroom pasta dishes. I tried this, but found the combination of port wine, white wine and cream was strange and not particularly appetizing.
