This recipe has the perfect balance of ingredients for taste and texture! The best part is that it doesn't take a long time to prepare this delicious meal.


Very good recipe. Everyone loved it. Will add it to my recipe book to make again.


The kids and I loved this one. My kids are 13, 8, and 11 mos. ALL ate it well... though obviously cut up very small for the baby. We made a few changes because we didn't have the perfect ingredients on hand. It made a great "catch all" dish catching our little bits of leftover veggies in the fridge/freezer. We used: * scallops * olive oil instead of butter, I used 2/3 of the amount of butter listed, but would perhaps cut that to 1/2 next time. It didn't need all of the oil. * half the peppers and tomatoes--we used red bell pepper, two small regular tomatoes & added some veggies we had on hand sliced baby portabellas & a little brocolli * onion powder for the onion * "poor man's parmesan" homemade breadcrumbs fried in olive oil and heavily seasoned to replace the parmesan--but we even forgot this at first and it was delicious without. * Oh, one last thing, the linguine noodles were rice noodles. This was great for fructose intolerant people who can't do wheat or onions. Good luck!


I used sea scallops instead of shrimp. I doubled the recipe, but tripled the peppers, adding 1 cup each green pepper, orange pepper and yellow peppers. Everyone liked it alot. A keeper.


We made it twice and put it in a big pot for a party. Everyone loved it. And, we even forgot the parmesan cheese. This is D-lisch!


This is an excellent recipe and fast to make . I often buy the white sauce in a jar to make it really fast in a hurry,but looks like you were in the kitchen for hours preparing it. We have it at least once a month.It's one of my husbands favorites!


Delicious! Loved it. I am so glad I have left overs cause I want to eat it again later. I did not feel heavy and tired after eating this. Usually pasta with cream sauces leave me zonked but this one didn't do that. Yummo!
