    I loved this recipe. Easy to change. Added half cup of white wine instead of milk, a chicken stock cube and some chilli flakes. A handful of grated cheese to thicken. Topped with a grilled jumbo prawn peeled with head and tail on and a sprinkle of parmesan and shallots. Impressed my girl!  -  27 Apr 2016


    This was the best seafood pasta we've had in a long time! I did add a few things like fresh diced tomatoes and mushrooms as someone else had posted. I also used a shallot along with the green onions, added extra garlic and thickened sauce with cornstarch. I will never buy store-bought alfredo sauce again. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!  -  02 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    MMM, I really liked this recipe. I added Fresh chopped clams, tomatoes, and Portabella mushrooms. I also added a bit more Garlic, and used the corn starch. I Like my sause a bit thicker. I don't think you need quite a table spoon though. I will use a bit less next time, you can add some more if you still think it is to thin. I can't wait to have this recipe again, and the wife was in heaven with it. Goes great with some Garlic bread, and ceaser Salad. MMM A+++++  -  06 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
