This recipe was great I did alter it a little as well. I simply sauteed the broccoli and shrimp in a little butter and garlic. I then added a garlic and herb sauce and the noodles to the pan with the broccoli and shrimp and mixed the whole thing together and plated it. Lastly I added the shredded mozzarella cheese to the top and put it under the broiler for about 30-45 seconds until the cheese was melted. I think with the addition of the garlic and herb sauce it added tons of flavor but did not make it too saucey. It was great!! Read More

I have to agree with several other reviewers - there is nothing wrong with this recipe it's just pretty bland. I added extra garlic some cayenne and Parmesan to spice it up but it still needed something more. Read More

I changed this a lot but it was great! I doubled the broccoli and halfed the pasta (whole wheat). I steamed the broccoli in the microwave and cooked the noodles. When the noodles were draining I used the same pot and used about 3/4 very low sodium chicken broth and garlic powder and dried basil (lots of both) then I threw in fresh shrimp and cooked that for a few minutes. Then I added the broccoli and noodles and put in a couple Tbsp. of Kroger's Lite Asian dressing. My daughter ate it warm and asked for seconds and she doesn't even like shrimp. My husband and I ate it cold. It was great both ways. I know I changed this recipe up but this way it was 5 stars for good quick and easy! Read More

A very simple tasty dish. I omitted the mozzarella on top at the end and my family sprinkled parmesan cheese on their own instead. Will definitely make this again! Read More

This was really good! I was looking for a shrimp and broccoli dish for a little while and I found the one! The only things I did differently were I added a little cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up and instead of mozzarella cheese I used parmesan. I served this for Valentines day with fettucine a caesar salad garlic bread and a bottle of chardonnay. Easy too prepare but it looked so elegant. Thanks! Read More
