2-21-2018 Simple enough as is but I went about this just a little differently which made it even MORE simple. Rather than cooking the shrimp first then removing it and setting it aside I just drizzled some olive oil and butter in the pan cooked the tomatoes and garlic briefly then added the shrimp to the luxurious sauce awaiting it in the pan cooking just until pink and opaque. Serving this with zucchini ribbons instead of pasta made this a healthier low-carb option. Five stars all around for simple delicious flavor with few ingredients (usually the way that goes!) and ease of preparation. Dinner (or in my case lunch) served in just a few minutes and with ingredients I nearly always have on hand. Read More

Delicious!! Quick and super easy to make. I used 1 lb of shrimp and kept the rest of the ingredients in the same amount. I topped it off with green onions and a sprinkle of a fresh Asiago cheese. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

Super simple to make and so delicious! I used diced up cherry tomatoes and added a bit of cayenne (for the pepper). With my summer bounty of basil coming we'll be making this one again for sure! Read More

DELICIOUS!! I made this really quick for my husband one evening after work. I kept to the recipe and had no issues. On my birthday celebration everyone ended up iced in at our home (10 People) so I made more and they apologized for me cooking on my birthday but was glad I did because they LOVED IT!! Couldn't stop raving about how delicious it was. Thx for sharing the recipe. Read More

Very delicious and simple pasta dish! I really enjoyed the garlic butter sauce with the fresh tomatoes. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and soaked up all of that sauce. It was a hit among the friends I served it to. Will definitely make again! Read More

My fam loved it. The recipe is very easy and I think it would allow for folks to add more vegetables such as artichokes. I liked the clean taste that this recipe has. Keeper!!! Read More
