Linguine with Shrimp and Garlic Cream Sauce

linguine with shrimp

We recently had a guest at a party call us a week later and ask for this recipe for Linguine with Shrimp and Garlic Cream Sauce. We figured we’d share this item from our catering menu with y’all as well. This dinner makes for a great summertime pasta dish- do the shrimp on the grill and go light on the cream sauce and serve with a panzanella or garden salad with a light vinaigrette.
