Needed a cheesy shrimp recipe that didn’t need parm, because it was last minute late dinner and I didn’t have any parm, and found this one. It was amazing and is a keeper. I used white cheddar, pasta shells instead of linguine, and frozen pre-cooked shimp because that’s what I had. Cooked the pasta, heated the shrimp and made this yummy sauce. Easy to make for this amateur cook. This is going to replace my previous parm and olive oil cheesy shrimp pasta for sure.
