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! Read More

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. Read More

This is my recipe - it is one of our favorites. Using the freshest ingredients is the best! I use only fresh grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese to stir in at the end! Feel free to mix it up with different veggies and/or use bowtie pasta (or your favorite pasta). Read More

I followed the recommendations of others and left out the green onions and added chopped onions. I also used bowtie pasta and grated some mozzarella on top before serving. I can see why others might say that it is bland. Next time I make it I will add more spices and probably extra garlic. Delicious! Between 4 adults and 3 kids there were no leftovers. Read More
