This was really easy and very good. I cut down on the onion because I am not a big fan of them. I also added a jalapeno because we like it hot! Also used precooked shrimp b/c we were to lazy to devein the shrimp (added in the pasta step; next time would add the last minute b/c the shrimp was a little tough). This is a very versatile recipe that I look forward to experimenting with. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2009.
