You can vary this recipe to your own tastes. I most always add onions to the garlic when frying and skip the minced green onions. I have used baby portobello mushrooms also. I always use fresh garlic! This is hubby's favorite meal.

Followed with suggestions made by emerald - added onions, skipped the green onions, used fresh garlic. I used already cooked shrimp that I thawed and removed the tails, I just added long enough for the shrimp to get warmed before I added the fresh parm. We loved this recipe. It smelled awesome, looked tasty and TASTED TERRIFIC!!! Definitely recommend this recipe to anyone who loves seafood and pasta!

Pretty good- a little bland. I added more garlic, fresh basil, and more salt.

Made this for an "Under the Sea" potluck at work today. Followed the recipe exactly, except that I just eyeballed the ingredients. Rave reviews, and have given out the recipe several times.
