  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. Melt 1.5 tablespoons butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly stir in milk and cream; simmer, stirring constantly, until thickened. Mix in pesto, parsley, 3 cloves minced garlic, Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, white pepper, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.
  3. Meanwhile, place broccoli in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 2 to 6 minutes. Drain.
  4. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet. Saute shrimp, remaining 3 cloves minced garlic, and 1 teaspoon salt for 5 minutes, or until shrimp are pink.
  5. In a large bowl, toss pasta, shrimp and broccoli; pour sauce over and serve.

When I read the reviews for this recipe I noticed that the people who had problems with it were the ones who fiddled with it, especially with the liquids. There is a reason for the heavy cream, ...

This recipe is absolutely awesome!! The sauce is wonderful, creamy and tasty. I used bow-tie pasta, fresh broccoli and frozen shrimp. If you use frozen shrimp, just heat it with the broccoli ...

Fantastic recipe! The cream sauce is to die for... loved the addition of the pesto. I made this for my son's 18th birthday. Everyone loved it... definitely a recipe that will impress your guests...

this was a little time consuming but after tasting the sauce I couldn't believe how good it was and well worth it. I recommend doubling the recipe for the sauce though. I will make again
