    Quick & easy! My family enjoyed this, they didn't even realize it was a healthy version. I used a 14 oz can of chicken broth and broccoli instead of spinach. Sauce was kind of thick, next time I will use less parm cheese. The sauce will make a good base for other pasta dishes also. - 3/14/09

    This was very good....I tried to lighten up calories so used only 1/2 the cream cheese, and substituted fat free sour cream. Added some red pepper and extra garlic, for flavor, and served with whole grain penne pasta. Everyone loved it! - 3/18/08

    My teenage son made this for dinner tonight and we loved it! He sauteed fresh spinach in garlic instead of using frozen. It was a filling meal, and we will use the sauce with broccoli and chicken next time. - 6/14/09

    Excellent! I altered it a bit... I sauteed garlic (a bit more than specified since we are garlic lovers), basil, sun dried tomatoes & 1/4 onion in a bit of oil from the sun dried tomatoes. I used less parmesan, low fat cream cheese, fat free chicken broth & Barilla Plus multigrain spaghetti. :-D - 7/9/10

    Oh my!! I started with sauté of garlic and fresh spinach in a bit of olive oil...a pinch of red pepper flakes, then added cream cheese, broth, parm followed by shrimp, then pasta. I think I only had about 1/2 cup parm and that seemed to be plenty. You can always garnish with a bit more. Great! - 7/12/12

    Our family loves "shrimp-in-love"! One's tongue just wraps around the pasta and shrimp and leads to savoring the fine Italian restaurant taste. I used fresh spinach. Found the sauce a bit heavy & added a bit more chicken broth.Simple to prepare! Hard to resist 2nd/3rd helpings! At-zuh-taliano! - 5/26/11

    Wow! I can't believe this recipe is healthy. I used spiraled zucchini instead of fettuccine. My family loved it as well. Next time I'll pour the sauce so I can measure it. It was difficult to determine the serving size since I didn't add the pasta to the sauce. - 2/25/20
