This is a fun recipe that me and my family developed ourselves. It is really flexible and you can swap out ingredients and change measurements to your liking.

Recipe Ingredients

  • ½ (8 ounce) package spaghetti
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped onions
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • ⅓ cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 splash white wine
  • 1 pinch dried oregano
  • ½ cup heavy cream, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil, or to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in mushrooms and bell pepper; cook until bell pepper has softened and mushrooms are lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add shrimp, white wine, and oregano. Cook until shrimp are almost cooked through and turning pink, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. 3 Add cream and butter. Simmer, stirring constantly, for 8 minutes. Add cooked spaghetti, mix to combine, and turn off heat. If cream sauce is too thin, thicken with flour. Season with salt and pepper and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and basil.

  1. Terrific! Didn't have heavy cream so used half and half and cream cheese. A+!
  2. Delicious! I will make it again.
  3. Yummy! Didn't change a thing!
  4. We really loved this. I'd probably give it 5 stars, except that it was quite a small portion of sauce.
  5. Delicious! I didn't add the cream or wine so it wasn't as rich as it would have been. I'm going to try the same recipe using chicken.
  6. I added sliced cherry tomatoes, flat italian parsley and basil.
  7. Really great. Thanks for the recipe.
  8. This was really delicious!!! I didn’t add any ingredients, but used more of some than written. I used half a small onion, a whole bell pepper, the whole small pack of sliced mushrooms, 8 ounces of cream, and about 12 ounces of spaghetti. I didn’t have any wine. This will be a regular recipe around - Read more ...
  9. Yes, I added different vegetables(zuchinni,yellow squash, red, yellow, orange, and green peppers). I added a can of fire roasted tomatoes, used pre-cooked shrimp and it came out very delicious!!
