    Switched light cream to 1/2 cup heavy cream and half cup milk, 1/2 an onion instead of shallots, alsoput in 1 tsp crushed red pepper instead of peppers( which I’ll likely still skip next time cause it was room spicy for me, otherwise I’d make this again

    It was very good! I had to substitute the white wine for vegetable broth and a tablespoon of lemon juice, and the light cream for 2 tablespoons of sour cream + 3/4 cup 2% milk, and the fresh red chili pepper for crushed red pepper flakes, and the shallots for yellow onion 😂😂 But it was still SO amazing! I will make it again!

    Holy moly! My husband and I absolutely loved this!!!! It is really delicious! I removed the tails, personal preference and I went a little heavy on the hot peppers accidentally but still was so good! I also added cornstarch to thicken. Wow!! This one is a keeper! I served with spaghetti, would be good with any pasta I think!

    Our household really enjoyed it. I’d say the amount of sauce could handle more pasta, if you are wanting larger portions. Will likely make it again. I like the idea below of adding mushrooms!

    Delish recipe. Cut red pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. and cut wine to 1/2 cup. Used a little corn starch at the end to thicken sauce. Flavors play well together. Will make again.

    Great! I don't know how it's supposed to thicken at all with no thickening agent in it though, so I added a little corn starch. Awesome flavor! We sprinkled some fresh Parm on top.

    Well don’t think it needed the onion and three tbs of butter prevented the shrimp from getting nicely brown, they just cooked in their own juices really. When I added the light cream it slightly curdled and I’m not sure if it was the wine or the Worcester sauce that caused the curdling. It was light though. I’ll try again with my changes above and see if this Recipe is worth saving

    A hit. I was mot sure the flavor with then chili pepper, but it was very good. Not hot or spicy at all. Maybe use cream instead too.

    Absolutely delicious. Made several times already and making again tonight. Going to add sliced fresh mushrooms and frozen sweet peas. Great additions.
