"This is my hubby's specialty! This is one of the things he loves to cook and can do well!"
Serving Size: 1 (125 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"This is great to make on a weeknight. Quick, easy and delicious! I did add some lemon juice to the shrimp just before tossing in the pasta and did toss in a good amount of parmesan cheese, allowing it to melt in before serving."
"for the spices i used a dash of Old Bay, roughly a half cup of chives, and a teaspoon of dried dill weed. A dash of accent. And of course we sprinkled parmesan liberally. The really great thing about this reciep is that we could immediately think of about 30 ways to make this and make little changes to make a whole new dish. This is a real winner!"
"Made this last night and it was a delicious! Added some fresh spinach, but otherwise followed recipe making smaller amount. Definitely a keeper so thanks."
"I didn't have fresh herbs, so I dumped about a tablespoon or so of Montreal Steak Seasoning, salt and olive oil into the boiling pasta water. I followed the recipe as stated. We were amazed at how flavorful the shrimp was. Anyone who doesn't like recipe either didn't add enough spice or didn't know to substitute a spice they don't like with a different one. The cook is in control of the outcome of this recipe. I agree with another post that states you can do so many different things with this recipe to create a variety of dishes. Kuddos to Jessica K!"
"This was really good! Made it tonight with salad and scallops on the side with a nice cabernet. I made a couple changes: I added just a little wine and alfredo sauce, plus some chives and mushrooms. For seasonings I used salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and McCormick's Perfect Pinch "Roasted Garlic & Bell Pepper" and "Lemon Herb."
Came out fantastically! :)"
"I made this for dinner last night. It was a hit! I added green beans and Parmesan cheese. I steamed the beans above the boiling pasta. This is such a simple dish to prepare. It's definitely a keeper! Thanks!"
"Pretty good and pretty easy! I followed the recipe as stated."
"The 5 stars is for the incredible versatility of this recipe. You really can make what you will of this one, and it's delicious! I loaded up on the garlic (about 10 cloves), and from there the only limitation is your own creativity! My only word of caution would be this: if you cook the shrimp 5-7 minutes after adding the garlic, you will definitely overcook it. I think 3 minutes max at this point, after you have already fried them a bit prior to adding the garlic. But thanks for the recipe Jessica! It's a keeper, and I'll be experimenting with different flavour combinations with this one!"
"Added a little more garlic and butter with a touch of lemon! Quick easy and tasty."
"Easy and delicious. I made this using gluten free pasta. The recipe was reduced to 2 servings. A 1/2 cup of frozen peas were rinsed and left in the strainer. The cooked pasta poured over when draining. It came together nicely. Generous amounts of Penzey's Tuscan Sunset was tossed with the shrimp and pasta. Parmigiano Reggiano was grated over the pasta at serving. I can see myself making this many times over. Thanks for a great recipe."
"Good & easy to cook"
"I just finished this meal and it was delicious!!! I did add some lemon but it would have been good without it too. I didn't have italian seasoning but I did put some dried oregano, thyme and some basil in it which is essentially italian seasonings. It was very good and I will be making it again. Thanks!!"
"We loved your hubby's specialty Jessica. It was delicious. Quick and very easy to make. I made this exactly as written, using herbs du provence as my chosen herbs. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again. The shrimp really sparkled in this dish."
"Easy, foolproof recipe. I usually add more shrimp and green (asparagus etc.) and less pasta. I have used just garlic powder when I have no garlic, and it turned out fine. I sometimes flavor the dish with Montreal Steak Seasoning, that's pretty good too."
"This was amazing! I am cured from wanting to go out to eat b/c this is the dish I would always want to get and I can make it at home now. My 7 yr old was impressed and asked for extra shrimp. Will be a repeater thank you!!"
"MMM MMM, sometimes the simplest things are truly the best."
"so good and so easy!!"
"I made a mistake and dumped all the pasta water so had to add more butter. That wasn't a bad thing! This is just excellent."
"Wonderful recipe! I made this the other night for dinner, and even the pickiest of eaters ate their dinner. I will be making this again for sure. Thanks for posting!"
"This was a quick and easy dinner. I had leftover cooked spaghetti, so it went together very quickly. Didn't have a lot of garlic - only had 3 cloves in the house, but it was still very good. Topped with parmesean cheese."
