Dijon Shrimp with Pasta

I combined several family recipes to create this dish, which I like to serve when we have company. If my husband had his way, I’d make it every night. —Gail Cawsey, Geneseo, Illinois

    Very good, If your that worried about the nutritional facts, read the bottom of this recipe. Otherwise make your own recipe.

    I loved this! My husband was a bit more lukewarm on it, thinking we had some other shrimp pasta recipes that stood out more. To me, the flavors were unique while tasting light, despite the cream. I'll definitely make again.

    Made a double batch of this for dinner last night and eating leftovers for lunch right now! Its delicious and fast to make.As for those bemoaning the lack of nutritional information, I agree that its nice to have that. However, we don't always get that with everything we eat. This dish has butter, pasta and cream. Its not going to be low in calories, so consider it a splurge.

    I made this tonight and it was very good, definitely a keeper. The only thing I changed, was I added two diced cloves of garlic, I will definitely be making it again.

    This was a delicious and fast weeknight meal. Made it exactly as written other then using half and half in place of the heavy cream and absolutely loved it. I will be making again and again. Simple yet elegant for company also. Definitely worth making:)

    sounds good but I agree with MamauJudy we need the nutritional values.

    This sounds delicious but I never try recipes that don't give the nutritional values. We list it for some, why don't we do it for all recipes?

    Don't often submit reviews but this is an awesome fast dinner! Great taste and not real heavy. Definitely will make again!
