    The reviews must of been from family or friends! This recipe is awful! No direction on when to add the tomatoes. I added a few of my own seasonings to give this "recipe" some taste. Not worth the calories from the heavy cream??.

    We don't do much pasta but since we can't resist creole flavors I had to give this a try. It is excellent!

    I do not eat shellfish but made this recipe for my boyfriend. He absolutely loved it. I finely diced the tomatoes and tossed them in right before serving since the recipe did not state exactly how to add them. The dish (I was told) was spicy, creamy, and delish!

    Tasty but recipe asks for 2 cups of tomatos but does not explain what to do with them
