      One of the best dishes I've had in a long time and hubby AND 4 year old son agreed. The only modifications made were I threw in 1 diced Roma tomato when I added the basil, I omitted the pepper flakes and I used regular spaghetti because I forgot to pick up angel hair but I think I like it better with the spaghetti so I plan on making it the same way next time.

      Just tried this and was very good. My son does not like strong flavors, so I reduced the basil to 1 cup, reduced the garlic and added 1 cup of fresh spinach that I tore up. It was good, but a little too mild - next time, I will put in 1.5 cups of basil and 1 cup of spinach. I served it with a nice salad and everyone enjoyed it.

      Halved this recipe and made for DH and my lunch today. It is nice, light, and easy to prepare and a good way to use up basil from the garden. I took the tails off the shrimp before cooking as I knew I wouldnt want to bother with them. Topped the dish with fresh grated parmesan-reggiano.
