      This was yummy. I used about 4 oz of cream cheese instead of heavy cream for health reasons. I also added mushrooms as another rater suggested. Creamy pesto deliciousness!

      Excellent sauce! I served it over homemade gnocchi instead of linguine (just because I wanted to try it) and sliced up Roasted Pepper and Asagio chicken sausage in it along with the shrimp. Yummy!!

      Really easy to make and great tasting. I had all the ingredients except fo the shrimp in the fridge. I cheated and used the small shrimp already peeled and deveined. I used more since they were smaller. This cut down the prep time but still gave the great flavor. My hubby also loved it and has requested it to be on the menu ... thanks LikeItLoveIt!
