Noelle C :)

this is my recipe and I must say that this site has dramatically changed it. I use 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups dry wine, and about 3 tablespoons of garlic. I also add a small bit of flour paste to thicken the sauce before serving over pasta. Thanks.


I took the advice of the submitter, Noelle, and it turned out perfectly. I really enjoyed this dish, thanks for sharing.


This was a nice dish, but I felt that the sauce wouldn't reduce, so I think I'd add less wine next time. Seems as though it needed something to thicken it up a bit. Overall, my guests enjoyed it, but I don't think there will be a next time. I also tried the champagne shrimp and pasta, and it was absolutely to die for. I highly recommend trying this instead! Thanks, anyway
