I made this for my husband and father in law and we all loved it. It's a little tangy but I like that, creamy and I didn't feel guilty about eating it.

75 Reviews for Creamy Garlic Pasta with Shrimp & Vegetables
I am a registered dietitian and I loved the idea of this recipe but agree with many comments that the flavor is a bit too tangy and the texture too runny. I used plain Greek yogurt instead (personalrd.com) and the result was much better!
The sauce was just too weird tasting with the yogurt. If I made this again, I would find just a normal Alfredo or other sauce. It ended up being a huge waste of money, good shrimps and good veggies because we didn't eat it.
I've never seen such a controversial recipe! Seems like you love it or hate it! I read through some comments and decided to use 50% reduced fat creme fraiche instead of yogurt. everything else was exactly like the recipe. It was delicious and a perfect summer-time meal. I shaved on some parmesan before serving and sprinkled on some chili flakes for me. I would make this again for sure!
Was way too much garlic and the sauce went weird when we mixed it with the pasta, wouldn't eat it again
