My family loves this dish. One small change I make is that I marinate the shrimp in the vinaigrette before cooking for approx. 15 minutes.
So good! The sauce is so tasty and creamy. My family and I loved it!
I love this!!!! Tastes great. Even my sister who doesn't cook much asked for the recipe. Always a favorite.
My husband always asks me "when are you going to make exploding tomatoes pasta again?" This is definitely what I make when I want to impress people!
My husband and I said it gets 4 stars. He called it DELISH! It is really light, and tasty. Like another reviewer suggested, I added about 1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream to give it a thicker sauce. I didn't have fresh basil, so I used some dried. Next time I think I'll add some Old Bay to the seasoning mix for some Maryland flavor. I will make again.
Printed this recipe 2 months ago, just had the chance to make it, LOVE IT! Very simple, fast and affordable, added a splash of half and half for a creamer texture, very easy to double, company loved it, would definantly make this again
Made this tonight as boyfriend wanted something with a lot of protein and thought shrimp would be the ticket. We both don't like tomatoes so skipped that but otherwise followed the recipe and thought that it was a quick and easy pasta and good alternative to the regular alfredo i usually make with shrimp :) Would make again and recommend!
I have made this several times - it is awesome! I use the Kraft Light Italian dressing, and have substituted a can of Diced Tomatoes seasoned with Garlic and Basil instead of the grape tomatoes. DELISH! Use FRESH parmesan - it makes this AWESOME, and don't skip the FRESH basil!
This is the first recipe that tastes a little wierd to me, but I think it might have been the fact that I used 1/3 fat cream cheese which has a totally different taste and consitency. If I tried making it again, I would use regular cream cheese. I did substitute sun dried tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes and they were great; nice addition! But overall, this was just ok for my personal taste.
Yay!! Quick, easy, and delicious! My husband loved it. I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried and I only had a regular tomato that I chopped and it was still fantastic. I'll probably try this with some chicken, too!
