    Used a full box of pasta and a whole bag of shrimp, because the butter to pasta/shrimp ratio was way off 😂 Also used a lot more seasonings lol. good base recipe tho

    It was super easy and super good added red pepper flakes to this after it was dished up. Very delicious also teamed it with homemade bread mmmmm.

    Turned out great! Super simple super easy tool some commenters recommendations by adding just a splash or so of chicken broth to help build the sauce and also added a little more butter after I added the pasta. I added some red pepper flakes to bring a little heat, as well as some ancho Chile powder.

    Family 100% approved. I added about 3|4 cup of chicken stock to a doubled up recipe. Beautiful dish!

    Shrimp had amazing flavor but the angel hair pasta didn’t pick up much flavor

    It was good. I had to add more pepper and lemon for more flavor. Chopped garlic would probably make it taste better.

    Used actually garlic instead of the powder and had great flavor! No zest needed, just one fresh lemon.

    The pasta was a little bland I would suggest adding something to spice it up

    -1 Star because the meal was a bit dry, changed it up a bit for more sauce and it tasted delicious like that.

    Not too shabby but definitely missing something. I added chives, cilantro, onion powder, and red pepper flakes for color, flavor, & spice of course. (Also used a pound and a half of shrimp just to make sure I get shrimp in every bite 😉) In addition, I added white wine as I sautéed the shrimp in the butter with the garlic, chives, and cilantro. Because I’m on no special diet I used salted butter. Glad I made these changes because I fear following the recipe exactly as is would leave you with bland pasta. Mine came out grea. I would make this again with the above-mentioned modifications.

    I added a few more seasonings. Doubled the recipe for more sauce. Will make again. Also added stir fry veggies. Had cooked shrimp on hand, so added last.

    It was really good! I used already cooked shrimp so this came together very quickly. My 4 & 2 year old ate three helpings of the noodles! (No shrimp of course, but hey I'm not complaining!) 10/10 would make again

    I added a little tomato paste, paprika and used more lemon juice and it turned out perfect. Will use parsley when ready to serve
