Wonderful and so easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly and the flavor was outstanding. However, towards the end a few things flew in the pot. I poured the scampi mixture onto the pasta mixed it up real well, and then decided I was going to add some basil and oregano, some garlic powder...can't get enough of the garlic:) Lastly, I added about 1/4 c of Parmesan cheese...yummy!

Delicious and easy. I took others advice and added more garlic, reduced oil to 1/3 cup and 4 tbsp butter. I did add lemon juice and fresh parsley. My husband loved it - definitely a "keeper" he said. Make sure you have plenty of bread to soak up the sauce-you'll want to get every bite of it.

We have been making this for years and I could never quite get the garlic taste to "stick around" once the pasta was added. Thanks to this recipe I know what we were doing wrong! We were carmelizing our garlic and onions - which for most recipes is great but not this one. This is a go-to favorite in my family. We do add crushed red pepper flakes to kick up the flavor a bit and I added 10 cloves of garlic - we love garlic in our house. Serve with crusty bread and you'll be happy!
