So, this was my first time to make this dish and I will definitely add it to my favorites! I don 't cook with shrimp too often so it was a nice little treat. It was pretty quick and easy! Plus, it is a Cooking Light recipe, so it's not too bad at 427 calories a serving.
While the pasta is cooking, all you have to do is just heat up or cook the shrimp (I bought cooked shrimp because my grocery store did not have peeled and deveined raw shrimp). Remove it and saute chopped garlic followed by vodka, marinara sauce, basil, cream and salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and then add the pasta and shrimp.
Here's what you get:
I served the pasta with some garlic bread and a nice butter lettuce and avocado salad.

Tip: The recipe calls for refrigerated fettuccine but my grocery store does not carry. The regular fettuccine works great.
