This recipe is one of my favorites, because the taste of the shrimp doesn't get lost in the sauce. The sauce has just a hint of a kick, and really enhances the shrimp. Just wonderful...enjoy!!

I made the sauce cooked the pasta and sauteed the shrimp but the sauce tasted so awful I had my husband taste it. I figured it might be just me having a problem since all these good reviews were up but he agreed. This is horrible! Don't waste your time or precious ingredients. Read More

Too lemony with the juice of half a lemon. I found it to be tasteless and too heavy with all the butter. Read More

Very good! I was a little nervous about sauteeing shrimp for the first time but they came about perfectly. I read other reviews about the flavor being a bit bland so added some diced habanero peppers and italian seasoning for more spice--and it was perfect! I added slightly less butter about 6 tbsp and used rotini pasta. No complaints! Read More

Just sat down to review this and realized I forgot to add the parsley at the end. Opps. Very good but make sure to add a good amount of hot sauce. Really needs it for flavor. I didn't because of a 9 y/o girl whos kinda picky but i added it to my bowl and yum! Read More

Pretty good. As it was I thought it was a bit plain but still good so I put four stars. Added chili powder and a lotta cayenne to my own. Read More

This was delicious. I had mine with spaghetti squash rather than pasta. Next time I will reduce the butter and try using 1/2 the amount and replacing the remainder with olive oil. Read More
