this is my recipe and I must say that this site has dramatically changed it. I use 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups dry wine, and about 3 tablespoons of garlic. I also add a small bit of flour paste to thicken the sauce before serving over pasta. Thanks. Read More

This was horrible! I took the suggestions of others and used 1-1/4 cups of wine added garlic italian seasoning etc. Maybe it was the brand of wine that I used but I was sure dissapointed and it did not even smell good. Read More

This was a nice dish but I felt that the sauce wouldn't reduce so I think I'd add less wine next time. Seems as though it needed something to thicken it up a bit. Overall my guests enjoyed it but I don't think there will be a next time. I also tried the champagne shrimp and pasta and it was absolutely to die for. I highly recommend trying this instead! Thanks anyway Read More

Loved this recipe! Simple and delicious! Only thing missing was GARLIC! Can't have scampi without garlic! I used all the same ingredients but changed the technique. I melted the butter and sauteed the garlic about 2 minutes. Then I added the wine and basil simmering 15 minutes until wine had reduced. Add shrimp cook til pink. Add pasta and toss all together. Yummmmmmm.... Huge hit at my house! Thanks! Read More

2 cups of wine is to much. I added extra garlic as well, which turned out great. Next time I might try adding some flour to thicken the sauce a little. Read More

I read Noelle's changes of her recipe and followed that exactly and it was still not what we were looking for. I'm the only one that ate it out of my family of four. I even added pepper and alot of parmesan cheese and it still just OK. Sorry Noelle. Read More
