This shrimp and pasta dish is of "very nice restaurant" quality. If I had not cooked it myself, I would have thought it was take-out!! My family loved it and my best friend said she was IMPRESSED!!!

Awesome shrimp pasta dish. Definitely use half the pasta. It's always good to have a little extra sauce... much better than having dry pasta with no flavor. I used all the ingredients it called for and was very happy with the result. I brought it to a potluck at church and everyone was drooling over it. hehe... always makes a cook feel good. One quote was: "I could eat this all day." I agree... it really is tasty. Yum.

We really liked this. The only thing I added was some basil. I took some of the other suggestions and only added 8 oz of pasta. I did go a little bit lighter with the cayenne pepper, used about 1/8 teaspoon. I think one of the best things I liked about this recipe was how it was as a leftover. The sauce didn't separate like some I've used. Great recipe!!
