    I did the basic recipe,then scrolled down to see comments and other tweaks. So garlic and cream cheese went in. I had no idea what Old Bay was, so put in a couple of bay leaves. The, catastrophe, I only had a dribble of sherry left and no more. Plenty of port, so tried a little of that at first, found it OK so put in four tbspspns. End result a really tasty dish, served with broccoli.  -  21 May 2018

    This is a 4.5 stars recipe with the following subsitutions. 1. Double the ammount of shrimp (1 pound) 2. Add one crushed clove of garlic and a few good shakes of Old Bay to the onion/mushroom/butter/shrimp mixture 3. Add cracked black pepper and 2 tablespoons of cream cheese to the "sauce" 4. Mix the parm into the tetrazzini and then sprinkle an additional 1/4 cup on top.  -  09 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
