Shrimp & Mushroom Linguini


There are some days when you just crave a simple pasta with a garlic butter sauce. This was one of those days & this is one of those recipes. This linguini is smothered in a garlic butter sauce with shrimp & mushrooms & then topped off with parmesan cheese & parsley. So good. I also used sliced mushrooms & chopped mushrooms for presentation & texture purposes, I was thrilled with the outcome.


You could make this for a date night meal, entertaining company or just because. It’s easy & is one of my favorite pasta recipes yet.

    This sounds so good. Definitely pinning it for later. We eat mostly beef and shrimp in our house.
