Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Cooked shrimp and sliced fresh mushrooms are bathed in an opulent sauce of sauteed garlic, rich cream cheese, fresh parsley and a dash of basil. Toss with hot linguini and serve as an elegant appetizer or main dish.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Saute mushrooms in a little butter or margarine until tender and cooked.
  • Cook linguini according to package directions and drain.
  • In a saute pan melt the butter or margarine with the garlic. Stir in the cream cheese breaking it up with a spoon as it melts. Stir in the parsley and basil. Simmer for 5 minutes. This will seem like a lumpy mess but simmer for 5 minutes and then stir in the boiling water and mix until smooth.
  • Add the cooked shrimp and mushrooms and heat through. Toss with the cooked linguini and serve.
