Favorite Restaurant Recipe

This Pasta Recipe Shrimp Recipe was submitted by a reader of the website. The Pasta Shrimp Recipe was put to the ultimate test.

I made it and served it to the restaurant guests. Karen, you now have a real restaurant recipe! The guests loved your recipe.

Karen noted that her recipe calls for skim milk and part-skim Ricotta cheese to help reduce the calories in the meal.

An added bonus without the loss of the delicious factor.
