(Recipe from allrecipes.com | photos from me!)

Makes 4 servings
Calories/serving = 603
WW pts/serving = 15 *yikes!*

INGREDIENTS

1 (8 ounce) package linguini pasta (I used thin spaghetti)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup butter
2 cloves garlic, minced (I used 3 cloves)
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3/4 teaspoon dried basil
2/3 cup boiling water
1/2 pound cooked shrimp

[NOTES: Make sure you realize *before* you start, the ingredients say “cooked shrimp”. I didn’t realize it and it kinda delayed me a little but its not a big deal.]

INSTRUCTIONS

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguini, and cook until tender, about 7 minutes. Drain.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms; cook and stir until tender. Transfer to a plate. (I covered the bowl with foil to keep the mushrooms warm)

In the same pan, melt 1/2 cup butter with the minced garlic. Stir in the cream cheese, breaking it up with a spoon as it melts. Stir in the parsley and basil. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Mix in boiling water until sauce is smooth. Stir in cooked shrimp and mushrooms, and heat through. Toss linguini with shrimp sauce, and serve. (I garnished with chopped parsley)

ENJOY! :)

    This sounds good but I’d probably make it with cooked chicken breast chunks since I don’t eat shrimp or any shellfish for that matter. I heart creamy sauces!

    RACHEYPOO, I ♥ seafood! I am allergic to lobster though. Sucky! You could definitely switch out the shrimp with chicken. If you try it, let me know!
