I was looking for a fairly easy shrimp alfredo recipe as I hadn't cooked shrimp before making it. Turns out it WAS really easy! That was the great part of the recipe. The reason I only give 3 stars is because while it was somewhat flavorful, the sauce pretty much got totally soacked up by the pasta and left more to be desired. I think I would try making a white sauce from scratch instead (the butter/flour/cream technique) of using cream cheese. I would also add some fun ingredients to add more flavor & texture such as mushrooms, caramelized onions and/or sundried tomatoes. Otherwise it is fairly tasty and VERY simple. Great for beginners!
