Thanks to all the reviews. I followed the advice of several. I tossed my shrimp in basil oregano red and black pepper and salt I had some fresh asparagus that needed to be used. Saute the broccoli asparagus 1 large mushroom lots of garlic and jar of fire roasted peppers plus the can of tomatoes not drained. To this I added a few more dashes of red pepper flakes because it seemed bland. After about 5 minutes I added the shrimp and it was truly delicious.Don't forget to add some white wine when you put shrimp into the skillet. Will definitely make this dish again.

This dish looks great to the eye. It does lack flavor and you need to be careful not to overcook the broccoli. We tried to add extra garlic plus added parsley lemon peel pepper and green onion and still felt it lacked something.

This recipe has potential but is only worth 3 stars as written. Here are my tips: 1) Use more garlic 2) Use half the butter 3) Add a little white wine 4) Stir-fry the broccoli with the garlic and tomatoes - that way it won't get overcooked 5) Top with Parmesan for serving. Now you will have a delicious dish. =)

This recipe is only about 3 stars as is but 5 with some changes. I marinated the shrimp in kosher salt black pepper Italian seasonings onion powder minced garlic and olive oil overnight. I grilled the shrimp on an indoor grill and set to the side. Sautéed a pack of frozen broccoli in butter added minced garlic black pepper onion powder and a can of tomatoes for 5 minutes. I used lightly buttered Chinese lo mein noodles too. YUM YUM!!

I made this a couple years ago (using this site) and am about to make it again tonight! I forgot to rate it before but it is yummy! I'll serve it with some sort of fruit to round out the meal.

Delicious recipe! I made it twice in one week because we liked it so much. I did change it slightly by adding more garlic and I tossed the shrimp in basil red pepper flakes and oregano before adding it to the frying pan.

I liked this dish a lot. Something different from our regular nightly routine. I think the recipe is mis-quoted on the tomato quantity. That would be a TOMATO stir fry and you wouldn't see or taste anything else. I used one 8.5 oz jar and it was great. I'd suggest adding a little more shrimp if you want a meat-ier dish but it is still good. I am not giving this 5 STARS because there is a BIG problem when you put this all together. You end up with a large pile of pasta and all of the other ingredients don't "mix" with the rest. I'd suggest either leaving a tablespoon or so of the water you boiled the pasta in with the pasta after you drain it (a friend told me this would work but I haven't tried it) OR take the easy way and just don't mix it all in. Serve up the bowl of pasta and the top it with the shrimp/tomato mixture. This tasted really good but presentation was off.

This was good. I added sliced mushrooms. Also I used way more garlic than called for. I don't consider 1/2 tsp to be anywhere near enough garlic for a dish to be called "scampi". Added some white wine while cooking the garlic and mushrooms. This needed a bit of pasta water at the end to moisten it up a bit. I'll probably make it again but next time with less oil and butter.

This pasta was absolutely delicious! I did make quite a few changes to suit our palate. I tripled the amount of garlic added a cup of mushrooms a hearty splash of white wine & 1/2 cup sweet red peppers. I also tossed the shrimp with oregano crushed red peppers and freshly ground black pepper as others had suggested. This dish is even more beautiful than it is delectable! I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

This was a quick and delicious meal. I simply added some salt and Old Bay to taste and it turned out wonderfully!
