Who would of thought shrimp scampi would be this easy to make, and this good. Thanks again for another fabulous recipe Inez!! I actually served this over linguine, and there are no left overs.

"MMMMMMM...this is good!" were my daughter's (she's 8)comments as we sat down to eat this the other afternoon. I was looking at the scampi recipes because I had some shrimp and I was really glad I found this one that didn't use white wine...since we don't have wine or other alcohol in the house...I followed the recipe to a "T" except I added garlic salt for the salt, a can of diced tomatoes, and a little more parsley. It was served over spaghetti and my family really enjoyed it! Leftovers were just as good the day after for lunch! Thanks for such a delicious, non-white wine recipe! It's a keeper!

I liked this recipe. I would have liked to take a big bowl of it with some crusty bread and gone off into a corner to eat it all myself! The shrimp were swimming in the sauce so for next time, I would strain off the shrimp and keep the left over sauce in a separate container to be used as a dipping sauce, if someone wanted to do that.
