Macaroni Grill Copycat Recipe
16 medium mushrooms
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1/2 cup butter, melted
16 large shrimp, cleaned
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 cloves fresh garlic, crushed, peeled, minced
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 jar marinated artichoke hearts
4 slices lemon
2 tablespoons parsley
Saute mushrooms and garlic in butter until almost tender. Add shrimp and saute until shrimp is cooked, about 3 minutes (Do not overcook!). Add remaining ingredients except the lemon and parsley and heat through. Serve over pasta or rice. Garnish with lemon slices and parsley.
Notes: After looking at the menu description "jumbo shrimp, capellini, spinach, mushrooms, pine nuts, lemon butter" I would omit the artichokes hearts and wilt some spinach into the sauce and serve over angel hair pasta to make this more like the dish at Macaroni Grill
